Two more people are in jail Thursday morning for their role in an armed robbery in Huntington earlier this week.
Trooper W.G. Hash with the West Virginia State Police tells Eyewitness News that 23-year old Jessica Ann Sowards and 26-year old Christopher Ward McNeely were arrested overnight at his residence in the 2800 block of 4th Avenue in Huntington.
State Police say the armed robbery appears to be drug related. Another suspect, 32-year old Manuel Javon Anderson was arrested Tuesday night.
The victim in that robbery, 21-year old Brian Scott Warden, II was also arrested on a capias out of Kanawha County. Warden told Troopers Anderson pulled a gun on him, that's when he handed over nearly $5,000 dollars in cash, and was thrown from the vehicle on the Walmart parking lot located along Route 60 in Huntington.
Troopers say Sowards and McNeely were also inside that vehicle at the time of the robbery. Both are charged with accessory after the fact which is a felony. They are both in Western Regional Jail waiting arraignment.
Two men are in jail and State Police are looking for another man and woman involved in what appears to be a drug deal that turned into an armed robbery late Tuesday night.
State Troopers say it happened at the Walmart located on Route 60. We're told that's where the victim, 21-year old Brian Scott Warden, II was robbed of some $5,000 dollars in cash and thrown from a moving vehicle.
