Daniel Mackey's bond is set at $250,000.

He was arraigned Wednesday evening by Magistrate Emily Bradley.

Parkersburg police have arrested the man they believe robbed three video lottery businesses in three days.

25-year old Daniel Mackey is in custody Wednesday night, charged with Grand Larceny and two counts of Robbery in the Second Degree.

Chief Joe Martin says it all started Sunday night when Mackey stole hundreds of dollars from the register at DD's Express Video Lottery Cafe" on Murdoch Avenue.

Then, he says on Monday night, Mackey stole an undetermined amount of money from a Must Be 21 to Enter on 12th Street in Parkersburg.

Chief Martin says Tuesday afternoon Mackey robbed Pike Street Lanes in Parkersburg.

Wednesday, around 2:00 he says Mackey made two 911 calls from the 16-hundred block of DuPont Road on Route 95 in South Parkersburg, stating that "the man they're looking for, Daniel Mackey, is at the Southside K-Mart".

Chief Martin says in the second call, in another attempt to elude police, Mackey said that "Daniel Mackey just stole his car".

Police traced the emergency calls and found Mackey hiding in a building off Route 95.

"Actually, one of the uniform officers called the number Mackey called from and the handheld he was calling from rang and that led them to where he was at," says Parkersburg Police Chief Joe Martin.

The first incident happened Sunday evening at DD'S Express Video Lottery Cafe on Murdoch Avenue.

Parkersburg Police Chief Joe Martin says the suspect walked into the business and asked the clerk for change.

When the employee went to get it, Chief Martin says the man stole hundreds of dollars worth of cash from the register.

Officials believe the suspect is also connected to Monday night's robbery at the Must Be 21 on 12th Street in Parkersburg.

Chief Martin says the suspect did the same thing by asking for change, but this time he tried to walk behind the counter.

When the employee told the man to step back, he implied he had a gun and would shoot her.

He then got away with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The suspect has been identified as 25-year-old Daniel Mackey of Parkersburg.

He is 6''1' tall and weighs roughly 185 pounds.

Chief Martin says he's facing grand larceny and felony theft charges.
