Surveillance video released in gas station robbery

A late night robbery with a thief armed only with a screwdriver.

That crime happened Friday night in Pulaski County.

WYMT's Phil Pendleton was able to get a copy of the surveillance video that captured the crime as it happened at a gas station-food mart in Science Hill.

Police are trying to figure out the identity of a man who stole money from the store.

The manager says maybe someone will recognize the man in the surveillance video.

The man's face was covered. He had a mask on and a hoodie up over his head.

That happened just before 10 Friday night at the D&D Shell Mart, which is just off Highway 27 north of Somerset.

The man was inside the store for several minutes and the only weapon he showed was a screwdriver.

The clerk wasn't hurt, but as you can imagine she was pretty shook up by the ordeal.

Police say their only description was a man with black shirt, tan pants, gloves and a mask.

Police say they did track the man for a short distance with a K-9 unit but the dog lost the scent, probably when the man got into a car.

The Pulaski County Sheriff's Office is investigating the robbery.

Police say if you have any information to contact them.
All calls can remain anonymous.
