Woman faces felony after allegedly failing to check in with home confinement

BUCKHANNON – A Harrison County woman faces up to five years in jail for allegedly failing to check in with home confinement.

Tristan L. Runner, 25, of Clarksburg, was arrested recently for escape from custody. According to the criminal complaint in the Upshur County Magistrate Clerk’s Office filed by investigating officer Sgt. Rodney Rolenson, on July 13, 2020 Runner was placed on court-ordered home confinement.

According to the report, Runner allowed her monitor bracelet to expire, leaving her unmonitored. She was removed from the Oxford House sober living facility at the beginning of July and failed to contact Rolenson or check in the home confinement office, the report states.

Bail was set at $10,000 cash only by Upshur County Magistrate Mark Davis, and as of Monday, Runner remained incarcerated in Tygart Valley Regional Jail, according to the West Virginia Regional Jail Authority website.

The potential penalty for escape from custody is confinement in a correctional facility for not more than five years.
