It happened about 2:45am at the 7-Eleven on Jefferson Road in South Charleston. Police say a man armed with a gun walked in and demanded cash and took off with a small amount of money. No one was hurt in the incident. Police say Elswick was at the store earlier in the night, made a purchase and then drove away but then came back to rob the store, they say during his robbery witnesses say he had an emotional break-down but decided to go through with it.
Police say their prime suspect in this case is Jeremy Elswick. Police consider him armed, very dangerous and "unstable." They have deployed several resources to find Elswick. South Charleston police along with Charleston police were searching an apartment complex on Leslie Road in Charleston Wednesday morning for Elswick. They found his truck but have yet to find their suspect.
