GEORGETOWN, Ky. (WKYT) - Take a look at the snapshots, police say this masked man robbed the Georgetown Cash Express around 1:30 Tuesday afternoon.

"He walked in, brandished a firearm, demanded money," stated Lt. Philip Halley, of the Georgetown Police, "That's our primary concern is that the man is armed and if he's willing to display a weapon in the commission of his crime, we're not certain he wouldn't do so again."

Georgetown Police say they need your help tracking him down. They ask for people to look at the pictures and try to identify the logo on his jacket. They say his eye color is brown and height is about 5'10".

"Right now they (the photos) haven't been of much help," explained Lt. Halley, "We do not have any suspects at this time."

Investigators say he left with a "reasonable amount of money," but they couldn't disclose how much. They also confirmed that this isn't the first time the store has been robbed, either.

"The cash express, here, has been robbed several times," said Mike Stacy, who works just down the road from the store.

"I just found out what happened over here, and I think it's just a disgrace," reacted Danny Roberts, "I can't stand a thief and a liar."

While this robbery adds to a list of other robberies committed around Georgetown, at this time, police say it doesn't appear to be connected. Although Lt. Halley said police are still investigating.

"An increase in numbers at this time of year is not unusual. I wouldn't necessarily want to call it a trend, but this is that time of year when this sort of thing happens, unfortunately on a more frequent basis," said Lt. Halley.

Police are continuing to search for any lead and they are asking for your help in finding this armed robber. If you have any information you are asked to call 502-863-7820.
