Suspect Robs Lexington Check Exchange at Gunpoint

The search continues, as detectives are reviewing surveillance video from the Richmond Road Check Exchange after a robbery Tuesday afternoon.

Police say a man walked into the store, pointed a gun at the clerk and demanded money from her. We're told the clerk complied and the suspect filled a brown paper bag with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Police say the robbery happened at a very busy shopping center. They say employees at the Quiznos next door to the Check Exchange reported seeing a man running by, but could not identify him.

Police say the suspect is described as a black male, 5'6 to 5'8 feet tall, weighing 180lbs to 200lbs, wearing khaki shorts, a green striped shirt, a hat, sunglasses and brown sandals.
