Troopers Investigating Floyd County Robbery



Police are investigating a robbery that happened in Floyd County Wednesday night.

They say a man entered Newman's Shop A Lot in Harold with a big stick demanding cash, and the whole thing was caught on camera.

"At 8:41 p.m. Post 9 Pikeville received 911 calls from Newman's Shop A Lot," said Trooper Shaun Little.

The store was being robbed, but the cameras were rolling.

The folks at Newman's Shop A Lot say it looked like the man was carrying a large piece of wood which he shoved into the clerk's back and pushed her behind the counter.

The man, described as a while male about six feet tall, wearing blue jeans, gloves and a mask, is seen taking money from both registers before running out the door.

No one in the store was injured, and state police are asking anyone with information to contact them at (606) 433-7711.
