Police say the robbers used some type of aerosol bug spray on the clerk, who was checked out by paramedics and is okay.

Investigators are reviewing surveillance video.

Police say the suspects drove off in a tan Chevy Blazer.

Frankfort Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest of the three suspects.

Frankfort Police are also investigating if the same group of people is responsible for other robberies in the area.

Frankfort police are investigating whether or not this robbery could be connected to others, "We have had some robberies. The description on this robbery is somewhat vague. We have one white male wearing dark clothing, gloves, and a hat, two white females wearing dark clothing, gloves, and a hat. In previous robberies, it's been a male suspect," says Major Fred Deaton, with Frankfort Police.
