Two arrested in connection with Roane break-in

SPENCER, W.Va. — A man wanted in connection with a January break-in in Roane County is now in custody, along with a woman accused of helping him hide out afterward.

Investigators located Justin Skaggs Thursday night in the Mt. Zion community in Calhoun county. Skaggs was the leading suspect in a break-in at a home on Egypt Road in Roane County back in January. During that break-in, the homeowner was asleep.

Police also arrested Hunter Leigh Roberts as an accessory after the fact.
