State Police: Troopers seek man in weekend dispute

Jan. 30, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

Reports from the Huntington detachment of the West Virginia State Police provided the following information:

Troopers are searching for information as to the whereabouts of Travis Kauffer, 32, of Huntington.

Their quest comes after an incident Saturday at a home in the 4200 block of Altizer Avenue. A woman told police she arrived at the home to meet with a man. Her face was then assaulted as she attempted to retrieve an item from inside.

A man at the house then grabbed a handgun and fired in the woman's direction as she attempted to leave. The gunshot missed and struck the window of a parked vehicle. The woman was hospitalized due to her injuries.

Troopers urge anyone with information about Kauffer's whereabouts to call the State Police at 304-528-5555.

BREAK-IN: Police are investigating the theft of more than $1,000 in sound equipment from Culloden United Baptist Church, which is located along Charlie's Creek Road.

The break-in happened Sunday. Items taken include microphones, speakers and amplifiers. It was the third such incident within the past nine months.

CRASH: A 32-year-old man from Huntington was charged with misdemeanor, second-offense driving under the influence following an Saturday vehicle accident along Olive Street in Huntington.

Initial reports indicate the man's vehicle hit several concrete poles that were protecting a business. The vehicle then left the scene.

Troopers believe the driver was under the influence of methadone. He also was charged with leaving the scene of an accident and driving on a suspended/revoked license.
