PARKERSBURG - Two men wanted for crimes in Wood County were returned to West Virginia from South Carolina Tuesday by the Parkersburg Police Department.
Matthew David McCue, 36, 2515 21st Ave., Parkersburg, and Jason Lee Caplinger, 27, 430 South Parkville, Apt. 45, Parkersburg, were being held in the J. Reuben Long Detention Center in Horry County, S.C., on unrelated cases, Sgt. Greg Collins, police spokesman, said.
A criminal complaint filed in Wood County Magistrate Court said on March 27, 2011, McCue struck a man four times with a pool stick at the Overtime Bar, 4542 1/2 Emerson Ave., Parkersburg, Collins said. The victim was struck on the right side of his head, causing a laceration, and also struck on his arm, causing broken bones, Collins said. McCue is charged with felony malicious wounding.
McCue also was served with warrants accusing him of petit larceny, destruction of property and conspiracy to commit a crime from the West Virginia State Police, Collins said. The charges were from an incident in April 2011 at the Rockport General Store, 7357 Southern Highway, Rockport.
Also in a criminal complaint in magistrate court, Caplinger is charged with taking a 2005 Subaru Legacy on Sept. 29 from Balderson Used Cars, 1301 Staunton Ave., Collins said. Caplinger was later arrested in Horry County while in possession of the car, Collins said.
Caplinger is charged with felony grand larceny.
Caplinger and McCue were arraigned in magistrate court. McCue is being held on a $3,500 bond and Caplinger, who was out on bond for a previous felony grand larceny charge at the time of his arrest, is being held on a $15,000 bond.
