WEIRTON - Weirton Police arrested a man Wednesday about an hour after he allegedly robbed a limited video lottery parlor on Main Street.
Officers responded to the People's Choice Cafe at 3383 Main St. after a female employee called and reported she had been robbed. Timothy H. Shea, a 43-year-old Weirton resident, faces a charge of first-degree armed robbery.
Officers gathered enough information at the scene to arrest Shea, but detectives declined to release any other details, including what type of weapon he allegedly used.
Detective Brian Beatty said police are in the process of reviewing surveillance footage and the investigation is ongoing.
Shea was lodged at the Northern Regional Jail at Moundsville late Thursday in lieu of $50,000 bond.
