This just in from West Virginia…

It’s been a while since we’ve heard from our friends in the Mountain State.

From Yahoo News:

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – A to-go order at a popular Huntington restaurant included more than just spaghetti sauce. Police say that after a man waiting on his spaghetti sauce to-go order snatched cash from the register at Jim’s Steak and Spaghetti House Tuesday night, the restaurant’s employees sprang into action.

Waitresses, cooks and managers and at least one customer piled on top of the suspect near the front sidewalk and waited for police to arrive.

Huntington Police Lt. B.J. Wamsley says the group did a good job of holding down the 6-foot-2, 200-pound man.

The suspect, 32-year-old Jackie L. Rakes, was arrested and charged with grand larceny. He was being held Wednesday in the Western Regional Jail and couldn’t be reached for comment.
