Upon investigation, deputies said that the suspect had torn both doors off their hinges to the building and destroyed multiple items inside the building.

Anthony Shepherd was charged with criminal trespassing – third-degree, criminal mischief – second-degree, alcohol intoxication, and menacing. This individual was lodged in the Laurel County Correctional Center.
