Three teenagers were arrested early this morning after allegedly robbing Bluegrass Truck Stop at gunpoint, Danville police said.
Kenneth M. Williams, 18, of Harrodsburg; Raymarcause L. Simon, 18, of Danville; and a 17-year-old boy allegedly robbed the Stewarts Lane truck stop about 1:40 a.m., police said. All three teens allegedly brandished handguns, took an undetermined amount of money and fled the scene in a black sport-utility vehicle, police said. Shortly afterward, Boyle County Deputy Sheriff Dustin Clem found the vehicle wrecked near the scene of the robbery and arrested the trio.
Williams and Simon were charged with first-degree robbery, tampering with physical evidence and second-degree unlawful transaction with a minor. As of today, Simon was being held without bond in the Boyle County Detention Center. As of press time, a decision was pending about whether Williams could be released on bond.
The 17-year-old was charged with first-degree robbery and tampering with physical evidence. Because of his age, officials did not release further details about his arrest.
