UPDATE: Princeton PD conducting investigation after early morning armed robbery

UPDATE: PRINCETON, WV (WOAY) – On Tuesday, Oct. 27, a group of individuals robbed the BP gas station located on Stafford Drive in Princeton.

The surveillance video from the store is very poor.  The Princeton Police Department is working with federal authorities to enhance the video.

These images are from the Ghent tollbooth at approximately 5:26 a.m. that morning.  There is an unsubstantiated tip that the Chrysler Sebring pictured is from the Beckley area.

Any tips or information is greatly appreciated and can be anonymously submitted to the Princeton Police Department or the Mercer County 911 center.


ORIGINAL STORY: UPDATE: (10/27/20 at 10:30 am) PRINCETON, WV (WOAY) – Princeton PD is conducting an ongoing investigation after an armed robbery took place early this morning.

According to a Lieutenant with the Princeton Police Department, just prior to 5 a.m., two black males with face masks entered the Little General Store at the BP gas station on Stafford Drive in Princeton.  They confronted the cashier and proceeded to take the entire cash drawer.

The suspects had already bought gas with a credit card at the pump.  One vehicle was a silver Pontiac Grand Am, the other being a dark gray Chrysler Sebring convertible.

Princeton PD is working with the Turnpike State Police.  It is believed the two males were heading northbound towards Beckley.

No injuries were reported, and no further details are available at this time.
