Lexington police are trying to identify a suspect in two robberies that occurred the same day.
On March 24, security images were captured of a man with a covered face and a red and black hooded jacket at the Dairy Mart at 155 East Reynolds Road, according to police. An employee of the store told police that the man brandished a firearm and demanded money from the register.
When the employee of the Dairy Mart complied, the man left, according to police. The suspect is being described as being in his 20s, standing about 6-foot-3 and weighing about 200 pounds.
The description of the man and his clothing matches a robbery in Georgetown that occurred earlier that day, according to police.
Anyone with information related to this case is asked to call police at 859-258-3600.
