Two Lexington stores robbed with notes
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Lexington police say two convenience stores were robbed Thursday morning after the suspect gave the clerk a note.
The first happened at the Shell on Nichols Park Drive at 12:30 a.m.
Police say a man walked in, asked for cigarettes then handed the clerk a note saying it was a robbery.
They say the suspect implied he had a weapon and took off after the clerk handed him the cash.
Witnesses say they believe the man got into a waiting car.
Then at 3:45 a.m. at the Speedway on Paris Pike, police say it was the same scenario – a man walked in, gave the clerk a note, implied a weapon and left after getting cash.
Police are looking at surveillance video to see if it was the same man in both robberies.
