WHEELING, W.Va. (AP) — Wheeling's police chief is stepping up patrols around area banks following a rash of robberies.

Chief Shawn Schwertfeger says he's also working with the FBI and the Ohio County Sheriff's Department in hopes of ending the run on bank robberies — three in as many weeks.

While Schwertfeger told WTRF-TV ( he's adding patrols around banks, he declined to discuss other strategies.
