CLERK TAKES GUN FROM HOLD-UP MAN - Last week in Huntington, a store clerk wrestled a gun from a man holding up the store, and in the tussle, the hoodie and face covering dropped from one of the men.

It was all caught on the Speedway stores camera during the early morning hours.

Huntington Police Department Detective says one suspect got greedy and set his gun on the counter, when the clerk grabbed the weapon and a struggle began.

Another tape from the same Speedway on July 30 involved a different clerk, two armed hooded men stealing cash and cigarettes.

Police have reason to believe the crimes are connected.
