Three Parkersburg residents are being held at the North Central Regional Jail in connection with a burglary in Ritchie County Thursday.

It happened around noon in Harrisville.

Ritchie County State Police say a 66 year old woman came home to find Anthony Pruitt and James Busch taking electronics out of her home.

When she tried to block the suspects' vehicle with her truck, police say Pruitt pulled her from the truck and then stole her keys and purse.

According to police, the victim gave officials a license plate number which they traced to a Parkersburg address Thursday evening.

Pruitt, Busch and Knight were charged in Wood County with transferring stolen goods.

They were also charged with daytime burglary in Ritchie County.

Pruitt was additionally charged with second degree robbery in Ritchie County.
