In this week's edition of the Mid-Ohio Valley's Most Wanted we have for you a Parkersburg man wanted for Grand Larceny.

Parkerburg Police Chief Gerald Board says this week, Christopher Moneypenny went to a home on 27th street and led the homeowner to believe he was interested in buying a 4-wheeler for sale on their front lawn.

Chief board says Moneypenny then asked the 4-wheeler's owner to test drive the equipment.

When he took the vehicle out for a spin, Board says Moneypenny drove off and never returned.

"i strongly suggest that if you're not familiar with the individual, don't turn your vehicle loose with them, don't just let them take it. You're responsible for that vehicle until somebody else has the title and it's just good business to not turn your equipment over to a stranger," says Chief Gerald Board, Parkersburg Police.

Chief Board says, if convicted, Moneypenny could face up to 10 years behind bars and he believes Moneypenny is still in the area.

So, if you have any information on where he could be, please call the Parkersburg Police Department at 304-424-8444.

You can catch the next edition of the Mid-Ohio Valley's Most Wanted next Wednesday, on WTAP News at 6.

    I can't help but get a crack out of the way people make justifications or attempt to pain a bad person out to be good on here. This is why they do what they do. They surround themselves with people that will accept them no matter what evils they do. And why should they change when they have such "support" ?

    Seems to me, you think you know this person, maybe the authorities should look a little more into you, and lets see what they may find. I donot care who you are, EVERYONE has skeltons in their closet, so if I were you, I wouldn't be casting the first stone.

    I hope they find this creep, he has affected so many people negatively. He has stolen so many things, I am sure if the authorities look into him a little more they will find he is involved in a lot more thefts than this one. I feel sorry for his child that he brought into this world, to have a father like him.
