Deputies seek robbery suspects

BARBOURVILLE — By John L. Ross, Staff Writer

Whitley County Sheriff’s deputies expect to arrest five robbery suspects, according to Sheriff Colan Harrell.

On Sunday, 911 dispatchers received a report of an armed robbery at Young’s Grocery near the Gatliff Community on east KY 904.

Two men entered the store after 6 p.m., one of whom had his face covered.

One suspect was armed with a rifle, the other carried a .22-caliber revolver, and both demanded money.

The two males left the store with an undisclosed amount of cash, as well as a .38-caliber Taurus pistol from under the store’s counter.

The suspects fled the scene in a white, four-door Pontiac Grand Prix. Three females were seated in the backseat of the vehicle.

Witnesses at the scene were able to describe one of those females as having a lip ring in the lower right lip area and wearing black fingernail polish.

One suspect is described as being about 5 foot, 9 inches, weighing approximately 210 pounds.

The second suspect is described as about 6 foot tall, weighing approximately 170 pounds.

“The case is starting to break a little bit,” Harrell said. “We are getting leads, and arrests are expected.”

If anyone has any information about this robbery, you can contact the Whitley County Sheriff’s Department at 606-549-6006, or Whitley County Dispatch at 606-549-6017.

Harrell and Sgt. Ken Shepherd led the investigation with assistance from the Kentucky State Police Department.
