Kentucky State Police were searching for a man who robbed the Dream World Adult Store in Knox County on Wednesday afternoon.

A man entered the store, in the Gray community, carrying a handgun, according to a news release, but he wasn't just after money.

Wearing a white mask, sunglasses and socks over his hands, he also demanded Mad Hatter incense and potpourri.

A police photo shows that the incense retails for $21.99 for 3 grams, and the potpourri retails for $15.99 a bag at the store.

Police said he left on foot, and a short time later, police found some of the clothing he was wearing: a flannel-hooded jacket, the mask and the socks.

He is described as white and in his mid-20s.

Anyone with information about this crime is asked to contact the state police at (606) 573-3131.
