PARKERSBURG - As her reward for being a good neighbor in returning stolen money to its rightful owner, a Wirt County woman alleges she was paid a late-night visit by police and hauled off to jail.

The West Virginia State Police is named as a co-defendant in a nine-count civil rights suit by Glenna Sue Conley. In her complaint filed June 10 in U.S. District Court, Conley alleges, despite evidence to the contrary, she was arrested, and charged with stealing less than $100 from a businesswoman's purse last year.

According to her suit, Conley, along with her daughter, went to the McGrady Jones Insurance Agency on June 18, 2010, to inquire about registering and insuring the daughter's newly acquired car. Accompanying them was a male friend of Conley's daughter, who is unidentified in court records.
