ELKINS, W.Va. (WBOY) — A man was found naked in a hot tub after a woman called 911 saying a man had broken into her Elkins-area home on Wednesday.
According to a press release from the Randolph County Sheriff’s Department, a woman called 911 saying a man named Justin Pennington had broken into her home, and that he was locked in the garage, naked.
Pennington fled the scene minutes before deputies arrived. Deputy Knotts and K-9 Twix tracked the suspect to a field where they found a pair of shoes, socks and a baseball cap belonging to Pennington, according to the release.
Deputies continued to follow the trail until Haddix Road when the trail went cold.
A few minutes later, deputies say they heard yelling near Ward Road, and a 911 call came in about a naked man in a hot tub at a Faraway Knolls home. Deputies and officers with the Elkins Police Department then arrested Pennington, the release said.
He is being held in the Tygart Valley Regional Jail on $20,000 cash only bail.
The sheriff’s office said there may be additional charges, pending indictment.
