The City of Corbin has now been hit with two robberies in less than 24 hours.

Police are investigating a robbery at the Check Into Cash in the Trademark Shopping Center in Corbin that happened around 10:30 Wednesday morning.

Scott Richardson works next door to the Check Into Cash and says people walk by their door all the time.

"We didn't even realize anything was happening. We were sitting in the office, and somebody walked by and we never thought anything about it," said Richardson.

He later learned that the man who walked by allegedly robbed the Check Into Cash.

"We never thought anything like this guy is going to rob us," said Richardson.

Police say the suspect walked into the Check Into Cash, handed the clerk a note demanding all the cash in the drawer. The note also said he had a gun.

"He didn't brandish a weapon, he just advised that he had one in his hoodie," said Rob Jones with the Corbin Police Department.

Police say the suspect did get away with cash but it was less than a thousand dollars.

Richardson says looking back, the suspect did act suspicious.

"This person walked by a couple of times so when somebody does that, he was looking in the office, so that kind of raised a red flag," said Richardson.

He says it's scary to think that it happened just next door, and he hopes the person who did this will be caught.

Police say the suspect is 6 feet tall weighing 160 pounds.

He has a scruffy beard and he was wearing a hoodie and blue jeans.

If you have any information, you should call Corbin Police.
