Crime of the Week
This week’s Crime of the Week is a brazen robbery from the Shell station at 176 West New Circle Road on Jan. 17. Just after 7 a.m., a man got some coffee in the station and made some small talk with the clerk. He mentioned he’d forgotten his wallet in his car. Moments later, he returned, flipped open a pocket knife and demanded cash from the cash register. The man never tried to conceal his face.
Bluegrass Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to the solving of this crime.
