and they recognized the man as Robert Frank, of Inwood, West Virginia, who had been cited into court by the Orleans County Sheriff’s Department for an earlier, unrelated incident, the release says. It says that, after a brief search of the neighborhood, Mr. Frank was located and admitted to the burglary. Earlier, Mr. Frank, who is in his mid-fifties, had been cited for allegedly driving under the influence. The citation followed an incident that also occurred at the C&C.
