UPDATE:

Tuesday afternoon, White Sulphur Springs police arrested two men suspected of arranging a robbery of a liquor store in White Sulphur Springs.

The alleged robbery happened last Friday night.

Jack Miller and Adam Feury, both of White Sulphur Springs, are each charged with grand larceny.

Police said one of them worked at the liquor store at the time it was robbed, and the two worked together to commit the alleged crime.

Police told WVVA they expect more charges to follow.

UPDATE:

White Sulphur Springs police tell WVVA there was no weapon involved in the alleged armed robbery of The Liquor Shop in White Sulphur Springs Friday night.

After an extended interview with an employee at the liquor store, White Sulphur Springs police and the Greenbrier County Sheriff's Department determined the crime was a staged robbery, planned by the employee and a friend.

"We obtained a voluntary permission to search form," said Jerry Smith of the White Sulphur Springs Police Department, "and searched a residence in White Sulphur Springs. We found a large amount of cash there."

Police will not disclose the exact amount of cash found.

Smith said they spoke with prosecuting attorney Patrick Via, who advised them to get warrants for arrest. He says they plan to arrest the two male suspects early next week.

White Sulphur Springs police would like to thank the other agencies that aided them in the investigation. "Without us working together, this investigation could have gone on for days," said Smith.

"We believe it was a man conspiring with an employee to rob them," said Smith.

According to Smith, warrants will be obtained for the men, whose names are not being released, sometime on Tuesday.
