PRESTONSBURG, Ky. (WYMT Prestonsburg Police need your help finding a man who robbed a Floyd County convenience store. It happened at the Skeans Marathon off US 23 early Sunday morning.

Police say the robber sticks out because of his height. Officers say just before 4a.m. on Sunday the man, who is well over 6-feet-tall, entered the local convenience store.

Officer Brian Walker says, "The subject came into the store. He was wearing some long clothing, raised his hand up like he was producing a weapon and that is when pretty much everything occurred."

Police say thankfully no one was injured during the armed robbery. The thief did get away with several hundred dollars in cash.

The owner is offering a reward. Anyone with information should call Prestonsburg Police at (606)886-1010.
