A Cabell County grand jury has indicted two Beckley men on charges stemming from a 2012 break-in at the Huntington Museum of Art.

25-year-old Remington Wright and 26-year-old Deon Staunton are each charged with destruction of property, attempt to commit grand larceny, conspiracy and entering a building other than a dwelling.

The men are accused of breaking into the museum on April 14, 2012, and attempting to take silver antiquities.

Police disrupted the break-in after an alarm company notified the museum's director.

Court documents say the break-in caused more than $82,000 in damage.
