Clerk Tricks Would-Be Robber

A man who tried to hold up a Corbin gas station late Monday night didn't have much luck.

Police say the suspect was carrying a long gun, possibly a rifle or shotgun, when he went into the Swifty on the Cumberland Falls Parkway.

When he demanded money, the worker told the man he had already called police.

The would-be robber then took off, empty-handed.

The suspect is described as a white man in his late 20's to early 30's, standing between five- nine and six feet tall and weighing about 200 pounds.

He was last seen wearing a black hoodie and jeans.
