Nicholasville PD search for suspects after armed robbery at Speedway
NICHOLASVILLE, Ky. (WTVQ) – Police in Nicholasville have released surveillance photos of two men they say were involved in an armed robbery on Tuesday at the Speedway on North Main.
Police say they went to the store around 4:00 a.m., where a clerk told them that two men wearing hooded sweatshirts came into the store, one armed with a handgun, and forced him to open the cash register.
While one man had the clerk empty the register, the other reportedly stole tobacco products.
Both men then ran off on foot towards the nearby McDonald’s.
Officers say they got to the scene within two minutes, but were unable to locate the men.
Now, police are hoping someone in the public can help identify the suspects in the surveillance photos. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Nicholasville Police Department at (859) 885-9467.
