Armed robber gets away with cash from Speedway

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) Police say a man armed with a gun made off with cash after a robbery at the Speedway gas station near Harrodsburg Road early Friday morning.

The clerk told police that the suspect is a light-skinned Hispanic man, about 5'2" with a medium build, wearing a gray hoodie, jeans, and something black over his face. She told them he entered the store around 2:30 Friday morning and demanded cash. She said he showed her that he had a gun in his pocket, but never pulled it out.

Police say the clerk said the suspect ran out the door toward Texas Roadhouse.

A K9 was brought out, and during the track, someone stopped the officers and told them that ten minutes earlier, they'd spotted at two door passenger car driving fast on Harrodsburg, away from Lexington. Officers say they're not sure if that's connected to the robbery.

Police say they're not sure if this gas station robbery is connected to a robbery at an Arby's restaurant, which happened late Thursday night.
