Two men stole dirt bike, police say

By Staff reports

Police in Dunbar arrested two men who allegedly stole a dirt bike from a parking lot on Monday.

Police received a call from a man who said someone cut the lock of his 2006 Suzuki dirt bike that was at Kanawha Valley Fine Jewelry and Loan in Dunbar.

Officers later received a tip that a man was attempting to sell a dirt bike matching the description of the stolen one, according to a news release issued Tuesday by Dunbar Police Chief Jess Bailes. Police went to the house on Woodrum Lane in Charleston and spotted the dirt bike in plain view inside the garage. They got a search warrant and determined that it was the same dirt bike, according to the release.

David Snyder, 27, of Nitro, was charged with grand larceny and transferring and receiving stolen property. Charles Grose II, 20, of Charleston, was charged with transferring and receiving stolen property.

The investigation determined that the two men had gone to the business on Sunday and cut the lock off the bike. They then drove it to a mountainous area and called a third person to help them transport it to the house on Woodrum Lane.

Snyder was arraigned in Kanawha County Magistrate Court and released on a $5,000 personal recognizance bail. Grose is being held in South Central Regional Jail on an outstanding warrant of domestic assault, according to the release.
