Kitchen , Logan County , West Virginia

Two men were arrested and are suspected of armed robbery at a Chapmanville 7-Eleven convenience store.

When one suspect, Jason Adkins, was asked if he was guilty, he simply replied, "No comment. No, ma'am. No comment. "

Adkins and Shane Hensley were arrested Wednesday. State Police said the duo walked into the store around 4 a.m. and made away with close to $150, cigarettes and chewing tobacco.

"They kind of grabbed everything real quick; put it in a bag, duct taped the cashier and directed him to the back room, and left the store," Trooper Marcus Broadwater said.

Troopers said they followed a trail of duct tape and items from the 7-Eleven to Adkins' home, where the suspect was questioned.

Shortly after troopers left, a fire broke out just yards away.

"There just seems to be a couple events that occur directly after each other that makes it seem strange," Broadwater said.

Police don't know who started the fires or how. That part remains under investigation by State Fire Marshals.

Now people living in the area are on high alert, and neighbors said this isn't something they'd expect from Adkins.

"He's a good person. That doesn't sound like him, you know," Nicole Wakefield said.

As the investigation continues, Adkins said he's got nothing to hide.

When asked if he thought police had a reason to search for him, Adkins said, "Honey, I was there. I wasn't hiding or anything. "

Adkins and Hensley are currently being held at Southwestern Regional Jail.

Hensley still needs to be arraigned in magistrate court. Adkins has a $100,000 bond.

If you have any information about the fire that occurred there on Ridgeview Road, you're asked to call the arson hotline at 1-800-233-FIRE.




Two men were arrested Wednesday and are charged with robbing a convenience store in Logan County.

Jason Adkins and Shane Hensley are accused of conspiring and committing a robbery at the 7-Eleven in Kitchen.

Police said Adkins had a knife, while Hensley carried something that looked like a gun in the robbery.

Adkins was charged with improper registration, driving revoked DUI, assault on a driver and obstructing an officer. Police said they caught him in his 2002 Dodge Dakota after putting out a BOLO on the vehicle.

Hensley did not make it to court in time and was taken straight to jail.
