Belmont County authorities continue to search for armed robber

BELMONT COUNTY, Ohio -- Authorities are on-the-lookout for a strong-arm robber who struck at a gas station in Blaine on Friday night.

The Belmont County Sheriff's Office and State Highway Patrol were called to the Clark gas station on National Road at around 6:00 p.m. Friday following the alleged robbery. The attendant described the suspect as a male of medium-build, about 6' 4" tall, weighing between 200 to 220 pounds, and wearing a mask and all-black clothing. The robber was believed to be armed, although investigators are not sure of the type of weapon.

Investigators combed a wooded area near the gas station where the robber is believed to have fled. At last report, the suspect was still on-the-loose. Anyone with information is asked to call the Belmont County Sheriff's Office at 740.695.2212.
