Quick Arrest In Lexington Robbery

By  | 

Police say workers at the Dairy Mart on Reynolds road were able to lead them right to the suspect's home a few blocks away.

That's because he reportedly comes here quite often to shop. 27 NEWSFIRST cameras were rolling when police arrested the 18-year old Trevor States at his home on Tartan Drive. He's accused of robbing the Dairy Mart on East Reynolds Road just after 1:30 Sunday afternoon.

Police say he showed a store clerk a knife and demanded money. He then fled on foot. No one was hurt in the robbery.

States is charged with robbery in the first degree.

People who live near States tell us the home where he was arrested is the same home that was fire bombed last year.

Lexington firefighters were called to the house in the early morning hours back in October. Officials say someone through a Molotov cocktail through a window. One woman was hurt while trying to put out flames.
