Detectives Working to Identify Robber Who Was Late in Pulling Up His Mask



The man who tried to rob the Thornton’s convenience market on Lebanon Pike at 3:35 a.m. on Sunday waited too late to pull up his bandana mask, resulting in his face being photographed as he walked up to the front door. That same man, after seeing his robbery demands rebuffed by the clerk, is believed to have then traveled to the Mapco store on S. Gallatin Pike at 4:30 a.m. This time he wore a hat, showed a gun, and demanded cash and cigarettes. The clerk complied and the robber fled the store.

Anyone recognizing the robber from the attached surveillance photographs is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463. Callers to Crime Stoppers can remain anonymous and qualify for a cash reward.
