CHESAPEAKE — Lawrence County Sheriff’s deputies are looking for a man who held up a Chesapeake gasoline station Monday afternoon and are asking for the community’s help in finding the culprit.

Sheriff Jeff Lawless said just after 1 p.m. Monday a man wearing a baseball cap went into Dave’s Exxon at 531 Third Ave., approached the clerk and demanded money.

“He fled with a small amount of money and left in a red vehicle,” Lawless said.

The man is described as being in his early to mid 30s, 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall with a medium build.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Aaron Bollinger at 532-3525.

    Why not put in an automatic machine gun in case they have on rubber soles on their shoes.

    I’ve noticed on the news the photos of these criminals that rob places like banks, stores, etc. The photos are always awful. I know the technology is good enough to get good photos and I think the stores need to invest in better cameras and need to have one camera behind the counter for a direct shot of the criminals face and not on the ceiling looking down. I also think the businesses need to place a mat across the floor in front of the counter that, at the push of a button, could electrocute the criminal standing on the mat.
