Police: Man with fake leg robs Danville pharmacy

A man armed with a knife robbed the Good Neighbor Pharmacy in Danville Tuesday afternoon, Danville police said.

The man, Michael Taylor, 39, was a regular customer of the Cassady Drive pharmacy, but at about 5:46 p.m., he came in and threatened the clerk with a knife, demanding controlled substances, police said, and left with the drugs.

A warrant for Taylor's arrest for first-degree robbery has been issued. Police say he is considered armed, dangerous and possibly suicidal.

Taylor is also suspected of stealing a gold 2003 Chevrolet Malibu, which was taken 16 minutes before the robbery. That car's license plate number is 792 CXC.

Taylor is a white man, 5 feet, 11 inches tall and 170 pounds. He has brown eyes, a shaved head and tattoos on his neck and face. He has an artificial right leg.

Police say Taylor could be with Amanda M. Derringer, 31, of Danville, who is wanted on a warrant for theft by unlawful taking. She drives a white Jeep or red sports car.

Taylor might also be in the company of Jerry L. Holt, 37, who lives in either Danville or Harrodsburg. Holt, who is wanted on a warrant for theft by unlawful taking, has an artificial left leg.
