RICHMOND —

The Richmond Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) are offering a reward of up to $6,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of a suspect in four recent robberies.

According to an RPD report, officers responded Dec. 6 to a report of an armed robbery at the D&G Food Mart on East Main Street. Store employees told the police they had been robbed at gunpoint by a white male in his mid-20s weighing about 130 pounds and wearing a black hoodie, a gray toboggan, blue jeans, black gloves and a brown bandana around his face.

In a Dec. 8 incident, RPD responded to a similar robbery at the Redi Mart on Red House Road, where the suspect was described as being as about 6 feet tall or slightly shorter and wearing a dark gray and light blue hood, a black jacket, khaki pants, black shoes, black gloves and a navy blue bandana over his face.

The Kentucky State Police responded Dec. 10 to a robbery at the Kingston Shell on Battlefield Memorial Highway believed to be committed by the same man. A similar robbery also occurred Nov. 30 at Bybee Grocery.

Undisclosed amounts of cash were taken in each robbery, according to the RPD report, and no one was injured.

Anyone with information about any of the robberies is asked to contact the RPD’s Criminal Investigations Department at 623-1162, Ext. 3002 or email: police@richmond.ky.us.
