Mark Thompson, 19, of Greenview Road, is charged with animal cruelty after police got a call from a woman who said he stole her goat
at about 3:15 a.m. Monday, Stover said.
Powers' nephew, Joshua Pollis, got a call from a neighbor early Monday morning, she said.
"They told him that my goat was wandering around in Mark's house and he'd better come and get it," she said. "They called my nephew because he'd been there before."
Pollis and two women walked into Thompson's house looking for the goat, according to the criminal complaint filed in Kanawha County Magistrate Court.
The three entered the house and made their way to Thompson's bedroom door when Thompson spoke to them, Powers said.
"He told them, 'Don't come in, I'm naked,'"
Powers said. "But they opened the door and he was standing there with his pants down. He had on women's clothing and the goat was dead and there was blood everywhere.
It was just a scene."
