The Cumberland Times News reports upcoming hearings have been set in Mineral County for some of the eight original defendants in a massive deer poaching case. West Virginia Natural Resources Police conducted an investigation that led to 223 charges involving at least 27 antlered bucks taken illegally in Mineral, Grant and Hampshire counties from mid-September to late December against Tyler Biggs, his father Christopher Biggs, Dalton Dolly, Colton Broadwater, his father Gregory Broadwater, Ivy Rodehaver, Robert Horner Sr. and his son Robert “Beau” Horner Jr.

Eight local residents, described in police reports as friends, fathers and sons, boyfriend and girlfriend, are alleged to have committed various hunting crimes.

Tyler Biggs and Dolly were Mineral County sheriff’s deputies at the time of the alleged crimes, and later resigned from their jobs.
