For the second time in three weeks, Nicholasville police are investigating an armed robbery at Cash Express, located at 859 N. Main St.
According to a news release from the Nicholasville Police Department, the second robbery took place Monday around 4:45 p.m. when a white male, described to be in his mid-50s, tall with a thin build, clean shaven, wearing a red hat with a black bill and black shirt, entered the business armed with a black semi-automatic handgun and demanded that the clerk give him money from the registers.
The clerk complied with the robbers demand, and the man left through the back door with an undetermined amount of cash.
The two incidents are similar, but police said it was too early to say if there is a connection.
“It’s too early to tell, but that is a possibility,” police spokesperson Officer Kevin Grimes said. “It was hit about the same time as it was the last time, right about 5 o’clock. He walked in very calmly and made his demands.”
