Woman robs store clerk at gunpoint in Franklin County

FRANKFORT, Ky. (WTVQ) – The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office released security camera images of a woman investigators say held up a market at gunpoint Tuesday evening.

Deputies say a woman walked into the Evergreen Market on Evergreen Road shortly after 8:00 p.m. and pointed a handgun at the clerk, demanding money.

Investigators say the woman was wearing a white hat with sunglasses and appeared to have her face and arms covered in white paint or powder.

The clerk told investigators that the woman told him she would shoot him if he didn’t hand over the money.

After getting the cash, the woman drove off in a car, possibly a Ford Mustang, on US 127 South, according to deputies.

Investigators are asking for the public’s help in identifying the woman in the surveillance photos.
