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

Teen charged with robbery

FAIRMONT — One man has been arrested in connection with a robbery in Fairmont Tuesday.

Fairmont Police Department Patrolman Brian Speakman, investigating officer, said Atavio Lee, 19, of Fairmont, has been charged with robbery.

Lee is currently in the North Central Regional Jail.

Speakman said Lee reportedly entered a home on Locust Avenue Tuesday and used a blunt instrument to rob a man from Charleston who was visiting the area.

Lee reportedly took money, electronics and personal items from the man.

Speakman said Lee was arrested by city police late Tuesday night in the Locust Avenue area near where the robbery occurred.

More individuals could be charged in connection with the incident pending an investigation, Speakman said.

The arrest is part of an ongoing effort by the city police department to fight crime in the Fourth Street area. Police also have aggressively increased patrols in the past couple of weeks.
