Panty-clad man tries robbery with lighter
INWOOD, W.Va. - A thief covered his face with a pair of blue women's underwear and used a pistol-shaped cigarette lighter in a botched robbery of a convenience store, police said. "I couldn't make this stuff up if I tried," State Police Sgt. T.C. Kearns told The Journal in Martinsburg.
The cashier at first thought it was a joke and refused to give the man any money, so he ran to a Jeep Cherokee and drove away at about 4 a.m. Wednesday, Kearns said.
A few minutes later, police stopped a vehicle matching that description and took two men into custody.
Police later charged Steven Clay Stephenson, 34, of Ranson in the convenience story robbery.
Kearns said police found a pistol-shaped lighter while searching Stephenson. The underwear was recovered nearby.
Stephenson is charged with nighttime burglary, attempted robbery, first-offense driving under the influence, petit larceny and improper registration.
He was being held Thursday at the Eastern Regional Jail. The Berkeley County Prosecuting Attorney's Office had no record of a defense attorney being assigned yet to represent Stephenson.
