Pike Co. convenience store robbed, police asking for help
Another robbery was added to eastern Kentucky's growing list Thursday night. Police say Ramey's Qwik Stop, on the Knott/Perry county line, was targeted along with several other convenience stores in the area. The confluence of drug addiction and the bad economy are the only reasons police have to explain why there has been a recent increase of such robberies in eastern Kentucky.
The robber in the Ramey's Qwik Stop case is said to be a man with a thin build, approximately 5'6" and last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and entering in a red Pontiac Grand Am, heading north on Highway 15. Please call state police in Hazard at (606) 435-6069 if you have any information.
