Two people were arrested Monday evening in connection to an armed robbery in East Wheeling.

The alleged robbery happened Friday evening on Lind Street, police say.

While patrolling the North Wheeling area, officers identified Day-Shon Leeandre Michael Creighton, 20, and Johnnie WIllie Long, 25, and arrested them without incident. Both suspects are from Wheeling, and were wanted on an unrelated burglary charge from a separate case that happened on June 6 in the 3500 block of Eoff Street, according to a release from the Wheeling Police Department.

Long and Creighton were taken to the Northern Regional Jail in Moundsville, and are held on $50,000 bond.
