Police are still searching for the man that robbed a Laurel County business at gunpoint over the weekend.

The Cash Express in North Corbin was robbed early Saturday morning.

The man in this surveillance video pointed a gun at the clerk and demanded cash.

He then left with the stolen cash without hurting anyone inside.

Officials say this is the first armed robbery the area has had in a while, and it does raise concerns.

"Any time a man comes in with a firearm with his finger on the trigger, it's a very scary situation," said Laure County Sheriff's Deputy Gilbert Acciardo.

Anyone with information on the robbery should contact the Laurel County Sheriff's Department.
