Laurel County store robbed at gunpoint

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) -- Police in Laurel County are continuing to look for a man they say robbed a store at gunpoint.

It happened just before 8 p.m. Friday at the Unique Tanning and Gifts Tobacco Store on US 25W near Corbin.

The Laurel County Sheriff's Office says a man walked up to the drive-thru window of the business, showed a pistol, and demanded money.

They say the suspect is a tall and thin white man in his late 20's with a goatee and dirty blond hair.

Police do not think this is related to recent robberies at a BP gas station in Corbin.
