FLEMINGSBURG — Police are looking for a white male who appeared to be middle-aged, of slim build and with a mustache and goatee, who robbed the Flemingsburg Shell station early Tuesday morning.

The man, estimated to be 5 feet, 5 inches tall, wore a camouflaged jacket, had a hood over his head and a cap pulled down low in the front, as well as a pair of gloves. He entered the Shell gas station at 3:15 a.m., and two minutes later left the premises with an undetermined amount of cash, according to Flemingsburg Police Chief Danny Carpenter.

Carpenter said the perpetrator threatened the employee, a female working the graveyard shift alone, though he did not exhibit any weapon. She complied, then immediately called the police. Maysville Police Department were called also, and brought a search dog to search the grounds near the station. The man turned left when leaving the Shell station, police said, and headed in the general direction of Fleming County High School.

The man's image was captured on some of the 12 cameras at the station.

Greg Barbour, the district manager for the Shell station, said that following the robbery they would examine the measures in place for responding. He said his employee did very well trying to stall the robber, keeping busy around the store so he had to follow her around. Barbour said she had waited to see if another customer might enter the station, and give the cameras more of a chance to capture the man's image.

"Our employee did a good job," Barbour said.

However, when police arrived the woman, who had been working at the station only about four months, was upset.

"She was pretty shook up," Carpenter said.

Barbour said she was doing well following the event.
