Police send gas station robbery suspect Facebook message
BRIDGEVILLE, Pa. — Police in one southwestern Pennsylvania town have sent an armed robbery suspect a message on Facebook and it’s not because they want to be friends.
Bridgeville police say 32-year-old Robert Watkins III has been identified as the suspect in the Thanksgiving Day robbery of Gulf station.
The police post, which includes the message, “It’s only a matter of time before we find you” shows several pictures of Watkins and say he’s been identified through surveillance video at the scene.
The police believe Watkins may be headed back to his hometown of Meadville, which is about 100 miles north of Bridgeville and also along Interstate 79.
Online court records show police were still looking for Watkins on Monday, on an arrest warrant for robbery and other charges.
