HUNTINGTON -- Two people from Florida are behind bars following a robbery and short pursuit on U.S. 60 in Huntington on Friday morning.

Police say a woman staying at Huntington Inn, 4644 U.S. 60, entered the motel office and stole an undisclosed amount of money from the cash box. Cabell County Sheriff Tom McComas said a short struggle between the female suspect and the hotel attendant ensued, and the suspect got into a vehicle being driven by a male accomplice.

The couple fled the property and traveled west. They were apprehended in the 3100 block of U.S. 60 a short time later.

McComas said all of the money except $20 has been recovered.

The Sheriff's Department charged Sarah J. Roseberry, 27, of Citrus, Fla., with first-degree robbery and Frank Evan Jr., 53, of Citrus, Fla., with aiding and abetting, fleeing and conspiracy to distribute narcotics.

They were transported to Western Regional Jail. Roseberry was released on bond, and Evan remains jailed on a $35,000 bond.
