MARMET, WV (WOWK) – The Kanawha County Sheriff’s office is still searching for a suspect in a robbery that happened in Marmet on Sunday morning, Nov. 28, 2021.

According to the sheriff’s office, a suspect walked into Max’s Place in Marmet with a sawed-off shotgun between 2:30 a.m. and 2:45 a.m. Sunday morning and stole money from the business. He then fled the area in a silver sedan. Three people including the clerk were in the business at the time of the robbery and no one was hurt in the incident, deputies say.
