Police looking for pair of suspects in Weirton

Updated: Wednesday, May 28 2014, 05:52 PM EDT
WEIRTON, W.Va. -  Police are looking for two men who are involved in two separate incidents in Weirton. Both of those men, who are on the run, were caught on surveillance video inside two businesses in the city.
One of the incidents happened Sunday morning when a man broke into The Diner on Main Street and stole a chunk of cash from the register.  Police received a call that afternoon about the incident and rushed to the scene.
"We went down, found that the perpetrator forced his way in and removed an undetermined amount of cash from the cash register of the business," Weirton Police Officer Greg Moody said.
While police continue to look for that suspect, they are also trying to hunt down another man, who a surveillance video shows walking up to cashiers and handing them a stolen credit card.
"He used it to make some purchases at the Smoker's Choice ... and he also purchased fuel at the Kroger on Saint Thomas Drive."
That incident happened more than two weeks earlier on May 9.
"We're asking anybody that may be able to help us identify this perpetrator to give us a call," Moody said.
