Suspect in 2016 robbery in Lexington arrested

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – A man wanted in connection with a 2016 robbery of a Lexington gas station has been arrested.

The Lexington Police Department says 44-year-old Vernon Jackson, of Frankfort, was arrested last week in Covington.

Jackson was identified as a suspect in the robbery of the Marathon station on North Broadway on December 9, 2016.

According to investigators, Jackson robbed the gas station at knifepoint.

Police released a surveillance image from the store at the time of the incident, but say investigators were not able to build a case against Jackson until earlier this year.

He was served a robbery warrant out of Lexington and a theft warrant out of Franklin County.
