Man arrested for allegedly breaking into outbuilding on West Main Street

BUCKHANNON – An Upshur County man was arrested last week for allegedly entering an outbuilding that did not belong to him and searching through the boxes inside.

Bucky Tenney, 39, of Buckhannon, was arrested for breaking and entering, a felony, and petit larceny, a misdemeanor.

According to the criminal complaint in the Upshur County Magistrate Clerk’s Office filed by investigating officer Deputy Cole Bender with the Upshur County Sheriff’s Office, Tenney “knowingly and intentionally entered property on Main Street” owned by another individual.

Tenney allegedly entered an outbuilding located on the owner’s property on West Main Street without permission. According to the report, the owner said he found Tenney inside the building with some items in his hand and other items in a bag and cooler, and the owner told police it appeared as if Tenney was about to remove them.

The file also says a green jewelry box was allegedly found in Tenney’s rear pocket, which belonged to the owner. The value of the property was approximately $100 and according to the report, Tenney admitted to being in the building and going through boxes.

Bail was set at $10,000 cash only by Upshur County Magistrate Mark Davis.

The penalty for a conviction of breaking and entering is confinement in a state correctional facility not less than one, nor more than 10 years, while the penalty for petit larceny is confinement in jail for a term not to exceed one year, a fine of up to $2,500 or both.
