The man who tried to rob Thornton’s convenience market on Lebanon Pike at 3:35 a.m. on Sunday waited too late to pull up his bandana mask, resulting in his face being photographed as he walked up to the front door. The clerk also rebuffed his robbery demands for cash, making this the most epic robbery attempt of 2019.
That same man, after seeing his robbery demands rebuffed by the clerk, is believed to have then traveled to the Mapco store on S. Gallatin Pike at 4:30 a.m. This time he wore a hat, showed a gun, and demanded cash and cigarettes. The clerk complied and the robber fled the store.
Anyone recognizing the robber from the attached surveillance photographs is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463. Callers to Crime Stoppers can remain anonymous and qualify for a cash reward
