FAIRMONT — Two Fairmont teenagers were charged Saturday with setting a Nov. 7 fire that destroyed a barn on School Road, according to sheriff’s Lt. Brian Duckworth.
Daniel O’Bryan Lockley, 17, of Boyce Road, and Dustin O’Ryan Locklear, 18, of Pleasant Hope Road, were each charged with felony burning personal property, felony burning other structures, and felony breaking and entering, according to Duckworth.
Duckworth said that the two teenagers, who are cousins, set fire to a barn on the 1300 block of School Road to steal the metal from the building. He said the fire happened at about 5 p.m. and destroyed the building and its contents. The value of the building was not available, but Duckworth said about $150 worth of items stored in the building were destroyed.
The barn was owned by Alvin Lewis and was being rented by Telford Hunt for storage, according to Duckworth.
