Police Blotter: Nonprofit in Guyandotte for special-needs children burglarized | News

GUYANDOTTE – About $2,000 worth of items were stolen from the nonprofit Adriaunna Paige Foundation overnight Tuesday in the 300 block of Bridge Street in Guyandotte.

Clothing and open boxes were scattered on floors throughout the building. Stolen items included a 60-inch TV, a surround-sound system, food, clothing, fundraiser prizes and tools. Police asked founder April Craft to obtain surveillance footage from nearby businesses so they could better investigate the incidence.

Craft luckily had just deposited in the bank all the money from her last fundraiser, she said. She believes the thief was someone familiar with the building, perhaps a peculiar man who was there Tuesday before she closed for the night.

“If not, they wouldn’t have known what we had – especially things that were hidden under the tables,” Craft said. “They even used our trash bags to bag the stuff up and carry it out.”

Craft founded the nonprofit in January 2016 and just started leasing the building in July, having operated mostly out of the Guyandotte Library before.

The charity partially operates on donations from weekly fundraisers, but Craft said a lot of it is paid for out of her and volunteers’ pockets. The foundation has no insurance and does not receive government funding, she added.

“If we had the money to replace it, it probably wouldn’t be as bad,” she said.

The foundation was named after Craft’s daughter, who is now 3 years old and suffers from cerebral palsy. Craft said the foundation serves anyone with special needs and their siblings.

“We do it for special-needs kids because they get excluded from so much,” she said.

The Huntington Police Department is investigating the incident.

The following information was provided by criminal complaints from Cabell County Magistrate Court:

CHILD NEGLECT: A drunk woman allegedly pushed her daughter in a stroller into oncoming traffic around 9:20 p.m. Tuesday in the 1300 block of 16th Street.

Security officers at Cabell Huntington Hospital saw Stephanie Coleman, 35, of Huntington, almost “dump the baby out” and allegedly push her into an active traffic lane, according to the complaint.

Cabell Huntington staff told Coleman to get back on the sidewalk, but she allegedly ignored them.

Security staff “physically assisted” Coleman and her child back to the sidewalk, according to the complaint.

Coleman had a blood-alcohol content of .19 when the Huntington Police Department gave her a sobriety test.

Coleman is charged with child neglect creating the risk of injury. She was booked 11 p.m. Tuesday at the Western Regional Jail, and bond was not set.
