BECKLEY — Beckley Police are searching for a male suspect who was seen on surveillance cameras robbing the Nell Jean Square Little General store Tuesday, Beckley Police Department Cpl. Dave Farley reported.

According to Farley, a man walked into the convenience store around 5 a.m. and demanded that the clerk give him money out of the register.

When the clerk handed over cash from the register, he left the store.

Although the clerk didn’t see a gun, the robber stated that he had one, said Farley. Security tapes at the store show a black male of average height and weight, he added.

“We do have a couple of suspects,” Farley stated right before noon Tuesday. “We’re trying to find them right now.”

Farley said anyone with information on the robbery may contact BPD at 304-256-1710.
