Police investigating armed robbery

Dairy Mart SuspectInvestigators with the Lexington Police Department are working to identify a suspect responsible for robberies in Lexington and Georgetown.

Around 3:45 a.m. Saturday, March 24, officers were dispatched to the Dairy Mart located at 155 East Reynolds Road in Lexington for a robbery. The store employee reported that an unknown white male wearing a mask entered the business and brandished a firearm, demanding money from the register. The employee complied with the suspect’s demands, and the man fled the store.

The suspect is described as a white man in his 20s, approximately 6 feet 3 inches tall, 200 pounds, wearing a red and black hooded jacket. The description and clothing matches a suspect in a robbery case out of Georgetown that occurred later that same day.

Anyone with information about the suspect’s identity is asked to contact Lexington Police at (859) 258-3600.

Anonymous tips, including photos and videos, can be submitted by texting LEXPD plus the tip to CRIMES (274637). Information can also be sent anonymously through Bluegrass Crime Stoppers at (859) 253-2020 or www.bluegrasscrimestoppers.com.
