On Wednesday night the Wheeling Police Department arrested a man who was allegedly involved in an attempted burglary.
Officers took Richard Dale West III, 40, into custody. He is charged with attempted burglary. He reportedly tried to force his way into a home on Virginia Street.
When he was arrested, West had items taken from a home on South York Street just a few hours earlier. He was then charged with burglary in the South York Street case, as well.
He will be held in the Northern Regional Jail, and will be arraigned before an Ohio County Magistrate.
