The check-cashing store inside the Walmart on Richmond Road was robbed Saturday.
A man wearing a University of Kentucky ball cap; a blue, UK hooded sweatshirt and jeans came into the store at 9:20 a,m. and asked for a money order, said Chris Van Brackel, a Lexington police lieutenant.
The man gave the clerk a note implying that he had a weapon. He then demanded cash and was last seen fleeing on foot southbound from the Walmart toward Beaver Creek Drive.
