Tonya Bender, 23, of 111 Matthews St., Elkins, was charged with conspiracy to inflict injury, accessories before the fact and accessories after the fact, all felonies. Bond was set at $30,000.

Reva Harris, 20, of Rt. 1 Box 208A, Montrose, was charged with conspiracy to inflict injury, accessories before the fact and accessories after the fact, all felonies. Bond was set at $35,000.

Randolph County Magistrate Rob Elbon set the bonds for all four of the suspects.

According to the criminal complaint, Trooper R.W. Jones received a breaking and entering complaint at Haney's Bar in Mill Creek at about 3:30 a.m. Saturday.

After receiving a description of the suspects and of the vehicle allegedly involved, Jones pulled over a gold Jeep Cherokee Laredo. Approaching the car on foot, he observed "several rolls of coins and U.S. currency scattered all over the backseat," according to the police report.

Jones said he observed an open bottle of liquor beside the driver, Gibson. Harris was the passenger in the vehicle. Jones also reported a list of items which were in plain view within the car, including "$286 in paper U.S. currency, $30 in rolls of quarters, a bottle of Lord Calvert liquor, a bottle of 99 Bananas liquor, a digital scale, a glass pipe commonly used to smoke marijuana" and eight small baggies containing cocaine and a total of two grams of marijuana.

According to the complaint, Gibson said the marijuana was his and that he had assisted Travis Hammonds in breaking and entering at Haney's Bar.

Gibson told police Harris and Bender drove the vehicle around while waiting for him and Hammonds to exit the bar. He said he and Hammonds took the bottles and cash from the bar, according to court documents.

Police said the owner of Haney's reported that $1,000 in cash and two bottles of liquor had been taken from the bar, according to the complaint.
