A Kanawha County juvenile is in trouble in what police say is a classic example of what not to do when committing a crime.
Deputies responded to a call at 741 MacCorkle Ave. in St. Albans shortly after midnight. Deputies say that the mother of a 13-year-old male juvenile told them her son stole her prescription medication.
Two hours after that, the same juvenile was found in Darrell Frye's tomato garden. Frye was awakened by his barking dogs and went outside to investigate. He found the juvenile with his lantern. The juvenile ran and escaped Frye, but the suspect cut his leg after running into a creek.
The drugs deputies say the juvenile stole were also having effects on his ability to escape, preventing him from running in a straight line. He was taken to a hospital and will be arrested when he is released.
"There are too many morals to this story to begin counting," said Lt. Sean Crosier of the Kanawha County Sheriff's Dept.
