PITTSBURGH (AP) – A serial robbery suspect identified by his selfie as the man who wounded a store clerk during one Pittsburgh-area heist last year will remain in jail until he can stand trial.
That’s because George Wilson III waived his right to a hearing Thursday contesting the government’s motion that he be detained until his trial on charges that he robbed three video exchange stores and four gas stations in the Pittsburgh area in November and December.
The 33-year-old suspect’s attorneys have argued prosecutors have the wrong man
But police, who turned their investigation over to the FBI, say Wilson helped identify himself as a suspect when he took a selfie. The picture shows Wilson wearing the same jacket as when he allegedly shot a clerk in the shoulder while robbing The Exchange store in Ross Township on Dec. 2.
