Parkersburg Police have identified the suspect accused of breaking and entering into a building that's used by local boy scouts.

Chief Martin says a man broke into a building located at 1349 St. Marys Avenue back on March 31 and stole a knife collection.

Police believe they now know who is behind the crime but aren't releasing his name until he's in custody.
