Nominate West Virginia Lock Up in the Best New and Best Law Blogs

The 2009 Weblog Awards
Whoever happens to stop by this blog may wonder why I started it. Whenever I read news stories online I always like to put a face to the story. So I got to thinking maybe other people would as well. I always keep up on WV news and most stories don't have the mugshots with them so I hunt them up online and post them with the story. It's not that hard and I don't know why the state news sites don't do it

3 try to rob Kroger's

CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Three Charleston men were in jail Tuesday after allegedly trying to rob a Kroger store on the city's West Side.

Sgt. Autumn Davis of the Charleston Police Department said Emmanuel Covington, 18, allegedly walked into the Kroger store on Delaware Avenue at about 6:30 a.m. and looked around before going back outside. A short time later, 18-year-old Terrance Bright, wearing a hooded sweatshirt, allegedly walked into the store and put his finger in the clerk's back as if he had a gun.

Raimonde Singleton, 19, was apparently waiting outside in a car.

Davis said Bright allegedly demanded money from the store clerk. When he refused, Davis allegedly fled the store. He and the others piled into the car and drove off, Davis said.

Davis said police stopped the car about a block away on Delaware Avenue and Randolph Street.

Covington, Bright and Singleton were all arrested and charged with first-degree robbery, said Kanawha County Magistrate Jack Pauley. They were in South Central Regional Jail on Tuesday in lieu of $75,000 bond each.
