An employee at Corinth Marathon and a Little Debbie snack food delivery driver had a gun pointed at them on April 27 when two males robbed the gas station, which sits just off Interstate 75.
The robbery occurred at 4:15 a.m. when two black males, described as being 18 to 24 years old, 5-feet 10-inches to 6-foot 2-inches tall, wearing dark hoodies, entered the station and demanded money from Tammy Baron, a cashier.
The delivery driver heard yelling and when he turned around, the robbers pointed the gun at him.
“It all happened fast,” said Dave Brantley, owner of Corinth Marathon. “It was over in just a minute. They just grabbed money and ran.”
Brantley said the store’s video shows one of the men jumping up on the counter.
“He just leaped up, quick as a cat,” he said.
Brantley said the station was the victim of theft nearly 13 years ago when someone broke in and stole the cash register.
The men are believed to have walked to the station, possibly from across Hwy. 330. Police are unsure if they had an accomplice waiting in a car or if they fled on foot.
“We don’t have a vehicle description, so we aren’t sure of the direction of travel,” said Kentucky State Police Detective Kevin Flick.
A reward for information, leading to the arrest and conviction of those involved, is being offered.
“We are hopeful that someone from the community may have seen or heard something and they’ll take the time to call us,” Flick said.
Flick said he hopes the robbery isn’t the beginning of a trend.
“We haven’t had many of these types of incidents,” Flick said. “I keep hearing that there could be more, but we haven’t seen it.”
Anyone with information should call Flick at 428-1212. The caller can remain anonymous.
