Cabell County man arrested after jumping school fence

Posted: Updated:

One man is in jail after he climbed over the fence of a local elementary school during school hours.

Matthew Miller, 33, of Lesage was charged with willful disruption of governmental processes, trespassing and prior larceny warrant.

The incident began just after 10 a.m. at Cox Landing Elementary on January14.  A student told a teacher there was a "white male in camo clothing in the playground with a gun."  The student told the teacher the man jumped the fence onto neighboring Riveria Golf Course and fled toward WV 2.

School officials took action and the school was placed on lock down and police arrived on the scene.  Miller, who Cabell County officers say they have dealt with before, is not known to be violent.
