Police are still searching for the suspect in an attempted robbery Oct. 26 in Buckner.


Just before midnight, an unknown white male entered the Thortons convenience store and approached the counter, where he displayed a handgun and demanded money and cigarettes.

The clerk told the man the police would be there soon, and the man fled on foot without any money or merchandise. The suspect wore blue jeans, a navy hooded sweatshirt and black ball cap, and carried a black drawstring Nike backpack. 

Officer Mike Head said no one has come forward with information about the suspect, who was videotaped on store surveillance cameras. 

Police are asking anyone with information to contact the Oldham County Police Department at 222-1300 or dispatch at 222-0111.
