ELKINS, WEST VIRGINIA – Travis Charles White, of Kerens, West Virginia, was indicted on charges related to taking stolen items across state lines, U.S. Attorney Bill Powell announced.

White, 43, was indicted by a grand jury on two counts of “Interstate Transportation of Stolen Property.” White is accused of taking more than $16,000 of stolen U.S. Savings Bonds from West Virginia to Colorado, as well as taking a stolen 2007 Toyota RAV4 from West Virginia to Pennsylvania. The crimes are alleged to have occurred in February 2017 in Randolph County.

White faces up to 10 years of incarceration and a fine of up to $250,000. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed will be based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Danae DeMasi-Lemon is prosecuting the case on behalf of the government. The West Virginia State Police investigated.

An indictment is merely an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
