HANCOCK COUNTY, W.Va - Weirton police are searching for a man wanted in an armed robbery. The incident happened over the weekend at the Donut Connection. Tuesday, police issued an arrest warrant for the suspected robber.
Armed robbery and a charge of a felon in possession of a firearm are the charges that suspected robber James "Jimmy" Carr is facing.
"We were told that a white male subject, approximately 5 foot 8, 150 pounds,wearing a dark hoodie had entered the establishment, displayed a silver revolver and took an undetermined amount of cash from the employee and the business and fled on foot," Weirton Lt. Gregg Moodie said.
Surveillance video from the shop shows the clerk and the suspected robber, Carr, in a struggle. Then police say he shows her the gun he was carrying and the woman backs away.
"Witnesses, passersbu,in the general area told our responding officers that a male subject that they thought they saw leaving the establishment got into a 1998 silver or gray Dodge Neon," Moodie said.
Police believe Carr took off in that vehicle that was reported stolen from the city of Follansbee.
"We were able to run the plate, made contact with the owners of the vehicle, who stated that James Raymond Carr had borrowed the car from them earlier in the evening on the pretense of going to the Walmart to pick up his brother," Moodie said.
Police believe Carr drove to New Jersey following the robbery. Weirton police have been in contact with authorities in the state, and Carr has also been placed into the national crime information center.
Carr has an extensive criminal history, is a repeat felon and someone who Weirton poloce
say they are very familiar with. If you have any information for this we urge you to contact our Crime Buster Tipline at 1-800-862-BUST.
