Weirton Police searching for robbery suspect


Police are asking for the public’s help finding a suspect in two weekend robberies.

The suspect is described as a black man wearing black sweatpants with a red stripe down the legs.
He also had a white shirt around his face.

If you have any information you are urged to call Weirton Police.
