Man charged with armed robbery of Tazewell County convenience station

RICHLANDS, Va. —   A Tazewell County man, Terry Anthony Robinett, 29, is in custody on charges related to the armed robbery Thursday morning of the Three Way Fast Break Exxon Station on U.S. Route 460 in Richlands.

Officers of the Richlands Police Department, working with the Virginia State Police, the Tazewell County Sheriff’s Office, the Cedar Bluff Police Department and tracking bloodhound/handler from the Virginia Department of Corrections responded to the robbery at the station at 3:41 a.m., according to a press release from the investigator of the Richlands Police Department.

Soon after launching the investigation, law enforcement officers found clothing and a pellet pistol that they believed belonged to the suspect. A couple of hours later, authorities spotted a male matching the suspect’s description in the Doran, Va., area and made the arrest.
