Teter of the Tucker County Sheriff’s office responded to the Tucker County Animal Shelter (TCAS) for a Breaking and Entering complaint. Upon arrival, he met with TCAS director Bailey Falls who stated that two dogs (Zeke: a two year old German Shepherd and Chance: a six year old Boxer) belonging to Mitch Adams had been stolen from the shelter. Teter took photos of the crime scene and observed where it appeared that someone had cut the chain and lock of the fence outside of the kennel area and forced entry into the building by prying open the door causing damage. Two people made their way into the kennel and took the two dogs. It was also discovered that they had cut the shelter’s fence and made entry onto the property.
Teter traveled to Mitch Adam’s residence to speak with him about the missing animals. He met with Britni Ball who claimed that she had no idea what happened to the animals and had not seen Mitch for a while. Teter spoke with Adams on his cell phone but he denied having anything to do with the incident.
A few days later Teter responded to Adam’s mother’s residence in Hendricks after information was received that the missing/stolen dogs were at her residence. He made contact with the occupants of the residence and asked if the dogs were there and they advised that they were and that Britni Ball had dropped them off on Saturday, July 17, 2021. Teter contacted WV State Parole Officer Brian Thompson because Ball was on electronic monitoring with GPS to find where she was during the incident. It was discovered that she had been at the residence where the animals were dropped off on Saturday, July 17, 2021. The animals were taken into custody by the TCAS director Bailey Falls.
On Tuesday, Oct. 12, 2021 Robert Ray Poe arrived at the TCSO and wanted to speak with an officer, Cpl. B.T. Zirk, of the TCSO, met with Poe who allegedly stated he knows what happened to the dogs that were taken from the animal shelter and was willing to provide a statement of what he knew. He provided Zirk with a hand written and signed statement. In summary, Poe stated that about on July 27, 2021 Mitch Adams came to his residence to do some electrical work. He stated he and Adams were sitting at the kitchen table talking and Adams allegedly told him that his dogs were impounded because they got into a fight with the neighbor’s dogs. Poe stated that Adams told him he dressed up, broke in and got his dogs back. Zirk asked Poe of Adams provided any details about the break-in and he allegedly stated no, just that they covered their faces and he never told him who the other person was.
Teter provided Zirk with a zip drive containing copies of the surveillance footage of the animal shelter on the night of the reported breaking and entering. This video footage showed two people with apparent covered faces forcefully entering the dog kennel area of the TCAS and removing two dogs from their kennels before leaving the area with the dogs.
