A man accused of a recent crime spree has been accused of stealing money from a St. Albans gambling parlor also. On March 15, 2013 a a report was made to SAPD regarding a man who had stolen over $1300 cash from Lewie’s, a gambling parlor on US 60 @ Oak Street in St. Albans. The theft was caught on video.
After the recent crimes caught on video in other jurisdictions allegedly done by Justin Lee Brafford, officers thought it looked like the Lewie’s offender. The clerk at Lewie’s also saw the news reports and reported the same.
Ptl. Sheila McCuskey obtained a Grand Larceny warrant on Mr. Brafford (32 yoa) on Monday March 18. Brafford faces other charges in Kanawha County and Cabell County for recent felonies.
