Parkersburg Breaking and Entering Arrest

By Allison Burke | 

Caught in the act.

Police have to tase a man they say broke into a Parkersburg store.

Thursday morning, at about 12:00, officers responded to M&K New and Used on Pike Street for a possible breaking and entering.

After hearing sounds from inside the building, they went inside to find Preston Harris, wearing a black ski mask and goggles hiding behind a glass counter.

They say he started beating on the glass front door to get away, so they tased him.

They were able to recover nearly $3,000 worth of items stolen from the store.

Harris faces a breaking and entering charge.

They say more arrests are possible.
