Police seek Isom robber

Cash register drawer is taken again

An Isom convenience store has been robbed twice in the last month. Both times a cash register drawer was taken from the Isom Double Kwik.

A store employee told Kentucky State Police that a man armed with a black handgun entered the business around 4 a.m. on April 1 and demanded money. The man left the store with the drawer to a cash register and was last seen walking north on KY 15. State police said the amount of cash held in the register drawer remains undetermined.

The Double Kwik employee described the man as being about five feet, eight inches tall and weighing between 165 and 175 pounds. He was wearing navy blue coveralls and a light colored “beanie cap.”

The KSP trooper investigating the robbery has reviewed images from the store’s surveillance system.

A cash register drawer containing $404.59 was taken from the Isom Double Kwik around 2 a.m. on March 2 after a man carrying a hammer demanded money from a store employee.

No suspects have been identified in either robbery.
