Lawrenceburg police search for suspects in violent armed robbery

LAWRENCEBURG, Ky. (WKYT) - The Lawrenceburg police department is searching for two suspects in an armed robbery on the night of April 28.

Police say two men robbed O'Reilly's auto parts store on Glensboro Road and stole cash. Then, police say the men forced the employees to the back of the store and bound their hands and legs with heavy-duty tape.

Maureen Bryant owns Mo's Uppercuts, a hair salon near the store. She says what happened to the people at O'Reilly's is a nightmare situation.

"Any time someone can enter your business, and put your lives and business in threat is a scary thought," she said.

The Mercer County sheriff's department is helping out Lawrenceburg police with the investigation.
