Police searching for suspect caught on camera stealing gun


Investigators need your help locating a suspect who they say stole a firearm from a local retailer.

Marmet Police said a young, white male walked into the Trading Post on Maccorkle Avenue in Marmet. 

Police said he waited until employees were busy, reached into a gun case, and stole a .38 caliber revolver with pink grips, valued around $400.

Security video from the store clearly shows the suspect taking the gun from the top shelf of the case.

Marmet Police warn that stolen firearms pose a serious threat not only to law enforcement personnel, but to the public at large. 

If you have any information on this case, or if you recognize the man in the photo, you're asked to contact the Marmet Police Department.
