Police investigate string of robberies

Police in two central Kentucky counties are investigating three robberies at gas stations all in the same area since Sunday.

The latest happened at the Circle K on Harrodsburg Road in Jessamine County just before 6 a.m. Monday. According to sheriff's deputies, a man wearing a gray mask used a gun to get cash from the clerk. He was last seen running toward the Kroger.

Around 3 a.m., Lexington Police responded to the Shell station at Palomar Centre, off Harrodsburg Road. Officers say a man wearing gray fabric, or a scarf over his face, implied a weapon. After getting cash, he ran behind the building, where police think he drove off in a car.

Police say the Shell robber fits the description of a man who robbed the Speedway in Beaumont Centre, also off Harrodsburg Road, around 3 a.m. Sunday. In that case, the robber showed a gun to the clerk.

So far, there have been no arrests.
