On May 12, 2016 at around 3:30 p.m. a robbery occurred at the Cross Lanes Dollar General on Doc Bailey Road. A white male suspect wearing a white t-shirt, blue jeans, and a gray colored baseball cap approached the cashier and demanded money. He raised his shirt to display what appeared to be the butt of a firearm in his waistband. He left with money and fled on foot toward the Drexel Place Apartment complex.
The Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office is investigating. Detectives will provide journalists access to the surveillance footage as soon as possible. While it has been viewed by investigators there are difficulties exporting the video to distribute.
