Putnam deputies searching for suspect after late-night armed robbery
SCOTT DEPOT, WV (WCHS/WVAH) —
Putnam county deputies are searching for a man who they said robbed a Scott Depot business late Saturday night.
Just before midnight Saturday, Putnam County Sheriff Steve Deweese said a man walked into Kelly's Hot Spot in Scott Depot with a handgun and demanded everyone in the business to put their hands in the air. He then went to the clerk and demanded them to give him all of the money.
The man then left the building with an unknown amount of money.
Deweese said the suspect is a white male and is about 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighs about 150 pounds. He was wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt and a black ski mask and was carrying a black semiautomatic handgun.
Deputies are working to identify the suspect by reviewing surveillance video from the business.
