Lexington Police said a third Speedway has been robbed today.

Officers said this latest robbery was at the store's Tates Creek Road location.

Police are not sure if this one is connected to the two other Speedway robberies. They have said the earlier robberies are connected.

According to officers, a man again handed the clerk a note that said to give him money.

They said when the clerk on Tates Creek Road refused, the man showed a gun. The clerk then gave him money and ran off.

Police are still searching for him.
