Recent String of Robberies May Have Been By One Man

Three local businesses were robbed this past week. The Hot Spot in Morgantown, the High Life Lounge in Quiet Dell, and the J and J Cafe in Fairmont may all have been apparently robbed by the same man. He hasn't been caught yet.
The Harrison and Marion County Sheriff's departments are on the lookout for him. The Star City Police are after him, too. With this recent string of robberies, how can businesses protect themselves? Officials said  that vigilance is necessary.
Patrolman John Billie said, "Make sure you have a good locking and security system as far as businesses are concerned. Make sure your security systems are up-to-date and if you do have any type of alarm system, make sure they work well."
People said that there could be all kinds of motives for robbery, and that can be a scary thought.
Harrison County resident Lori Thacker said, "It could be desperation for desperate times. It could be drug-related. It could be spite. It's just a number of factors that could play a part in it."
We tried to contact some of the local businesses that were robbed, but they offered no comment. If you have any information, please contact your local police.
