Va (WVNS) — West Virginia State Police have arrested a man who allegedly robbed a flower shop in Princeton. Eric Wayne Long is facing a number of criminal charges including battery, malicious assault, burglary, grand and petit larceny and conspiracy. According to court documents, troopers responded to a burglary call at Colonial Florist on Athens Road in Princeton around 1 in the afternoon on Tuesday, November 28. The owner told troopers he received a call from Eric Long requesting flowers for a funeral. In exchange for the flowers, Long would work at the store for a couple of hours. The owner told deputies Long had worked for him in the past doing jobs at the shop such as emptying the garbage and unloading deliveries. While Long was working, the owner said another man entered the store wearing a grey hoodie. The man then hit the owner from the back, knocking him to the ground, and stole his wallet which had several credit cards and $1,000 in cash. When the owner got up from the floor, he told troopers he saw Long running away from the store with the man in the grey hoodie. At this time, it’s unclear who the man in the grey hoodie is or if he has been arrested at this time. Long is being held in the Southern Regional Jail on a $50,000 cash bond. ... http://www.wvnstv.com/local-news/mercer-county/troopers-man-arrested-for-robbing-princeton-floral-shop-/876091452
New market brings taste of NYC to Hurricane - Charleston Gazette-MailTuesday, November 28, 2017
This is both of our passions mixing together.”The couple lived in Manhattan for a year while Leah worked toward a master’s degree in fashion merchandising. They knew they wanted to come back to West Virginia, she said, so they shifted gears a little.“We kind of got used to the lifestyle of going places and being able to pick out fresh flowers, stuff to cook dinner, a coffee and picking up a gift for a friend. All in one place,” she said. “We wanted to create a one-stop shop to have all of those things.”The Putnam Market officially opened its doors Oct. 11. The market is located on Teays Valley Road across from Hurricane City Park.The Putnam Market sells hot coffee, sourced from Charleston, South Carolina. Provisions are from brands the couple discovered while living in New York City or while traveling together — things not found in the local area. Pre-packaged baked goods are also for sale, prepared by Britney Higginbothom, owner of Sweet B’s Bakery.Guests can also purchase curated, or make their own, gift baskets, fitting any budget, Meeks said. She said she also has plans to hold a holiday wreath-making class after the Thanksgiving holiday and has opened the market space up to those interested in hosting events there.“This is blank canvas,” she said. “That’s what we like about this.”But the market’s biggest draw is its array of fresh flowers.Upon walking into the market, guests are greeted by a large table filled with colorful, seasonal flowers. The market’s Instagram and Facebook pages are filled with photos of arrangements made by Meeks and customers.Meeks and her sister started an event planning and wedding business almost two years ago, which ignited her passion for floral arranging.Shoppe...
