MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — Police say a man has been charged with breaking into the Morgantown Chamber of Commerce building.

The Morgantown Police Department on Monday announced breaking and entering charges against 40-year-old Brian Singleton.

Authorities say they responded to a burglar alarm at the building Saturday and spotted Singleton leaving through a back door.

He was arrested without incident. Police said they found suspected stolen property on Singleton during a search.

There was also damage to the building from Singleton trying to disable the burglar alarm.


Singleton has not yet hired an attorney.
