Darrel Nangle, who people identified in comments on our WRXX Facebook page Tuesday afternoon, was charged Wednesday in Clinton County Court with Class 2 felony burglary and Class 4 felony criminal damage to property.

A surveillance video from the store shows around 1:12 a.m. Tuesday, a cinder block being thrown through the front window of the store, with a subject now identified by Centralia police as Nangle entering the store and leaving with several gaming systems, along with approximately 300 games. Police say all the stolen merchandise has been recovered.

Video from other business surveillance systems in the area reportedly captured images of Nangle’s vehicle. Police say they were able to verify Nangle was the person seen in the video. In fact, a hat worn by the subject in the video, matched a hat being worn by Nangle in a photo taken from his Facebook page and posted by followers on the WRXX page.

The break-in was discovered around 8:30 Tuesday morning, with the operators of the GameBlast able to clean up the mess and reopen for business later in the day.

Nangle is next scheduled in court September 23, with court appointed counsel. He remains in the Clinton County Jail, in lieu of $1,000 cash bond.
