On December 18, 2012, at approximately 9:10 a.m. Kentucky State Police in Hazard received a report of an armed robbery at Ameri-Cash in the Hindman com- munity of Knott County.
Preliminary investigation indicates that a white male entered the business and brandished a handgun. The perpetrator demanded money and gave instructions to the clerk for her to follow. The perpetrator then fled on foot until the victim lost sight of him.
Witnesses describe the suspect as a white male, approximately 5’10” and 275 to 300 pounds. He was dressed in a dark zip-up hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans. The hood of the sweatshirt was tied tightly around his face, but he appeared to have reddish brown hair and short facial hair (as if he hadn’t shaved in a few days).
The perpetrator fled with an undisclosed amount of cash in an unknown direction of travel. No one was injured during the robbery. Kentucky State Police are asking anyone that may have been in the area during that time or anyone who may have information about the robbery to contact them at 1-800-222-5555 or 606- 435-6069.
