May 11, 2017: B&E’s End in Arrest

On Thursday, May 11, 2017 Kanawha County Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to WV Marine in Jefferson, WV.  A caller to Metro 911 said he saw a man trying to steal a large air conditioning unit.  When Deputies arrived they found a damaged air conditioning unit and began searching the area for the described suspect.


They heard a commotion inside a nearby building, Landmark Baptist Church on MacCorkle Avenue.  The building had been forcibly entered, and Deputies surrounded the building and began searching.  Jason Robert Swindler (42 years old of Given, WV) was found in the church.  He was arrested and charged with two counts of breaking and entering.  Evidence at the scene was collected which may lead to additional, similar charges.


Attached is a mugshot of Mr. Swindler.  As is always the case in criminal matters the charges against Mr. Swindler are merely accusations.  He is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
