MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Police have issued a warrant charging a Martinsburg woman with robbing a Williamsport Waffle House Saturday.
Tonya Marie Powell, 23, was charged in the warrant with armed robbery, robbery, misdemeanor theft, first-degree and second-degree assault, use of a handgun in the commission of a felony or violent crime and wearing or carrying a handgun on her person, said Washington County Sheriff's Investigator Greg Alton.
Alton said he believed Powell was still in the Tri-State area, and should be considered armed and dangerous.
Martinsburg Police Department Cpl. D.W. Ruppenthal said the Williamsport Waffle House robbery and a robbery at a Martinsburg Waffle House might be linked.
Upon entering the 1000 S. Foxcroft Ave. restaurant in Martinsburg about 5 a.m., a woman went straight to the cash register and showed what appeared to be a gun to get $367 from the register, Ruppenthal said.
