Police Send Gas Station Robbery Suspect Facebook Message

BRIDGEVILLE, Pa. (AP) — Police in one 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 a 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 says he’s been identified through surveillance video at the scene.

The police believe Watkins may be headed to his hometown of Meadville, about 100 miles north of Bridgeville, in western Pennsylvania.

Online court records show police were still looking for Watkins on Monday on an arrest warrant for robbery and other charges.
