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

Second man arrested in robbery

FAIRMONT — A second man has been arrested in connection with a reported robbery at a Locust Avenue residence earlier this week.

Twenty-four-year-old Fairmont resident Franklin McVay has been charged with first-degree robbery and was arraigned in Marion County Magistrate Court before Magistrate Hank Middlemas Thursday.

According to court documents, the incident occurred at 704 Locust Ave., Apt. 2, in Fairmont Tuesday. The documents state that McVay, “with the assistance of other males,” struck another man with a blunt object and took $200 from him.

Wednesday, 19-year-old Atavio Lee was arrested in connection with the incident. According to a Fairmont police patrolman, Lee was also involved in striking the man with the blunt object and reportedly took money, electronics and personal items from the man.

McVay requested an attorney at his arraignment but has not requested a preliminary hearing. His bond was set at $25,000 cash or surety, which he did not post.

Both McVay and Lee are currently housed at the North Central Regional Jail.
