John E. Shaffer, 25, of Hardy was charged with Theft of Property, Criminal Mischief in the First Degree and Breaking or Entering in a Feb. 23 Circuit Court filing. Shaffer was charged in connection with an Oct. 14, 2011 incident in which a shed was broken into on Pine Crest Road, and a camper on the property was ripped nearly in two as someone attempted to remove it. On Feb. 17, a man was questioned about the incident. He said he had cut a tree in front of the camper at John "Bo" Shaffer's request. Shaffer told him he had received permission to remove the camper and sell it for scrap. According to the witness, Shaffer and another man left the property after severely damaging the camper while trying to move it. The camper was valued at more than $2,000.
