MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — The Berkeley County Sheriff’s Department is seeking the public’s help in tracking down a suspect

The incident occurred early Tuesday morning. Deputies were dispatched just before 1 a.m.
to the store at 8949 Williamsport Pike.

The suspect is described as a white male, 35 to 40 years of age last seen wearing a hoodie and dressed in black.

several minutes” and then went to the counter with merchandise.

suspect grabbed several packs of cigarettes and then left the store.”
