IPD seeks info on 3 armed robberies

IRONTON  — Ironton police are looking for a white male that they believe is responsible for three armed robberies of city businesses in the past two days.

Thursday evening around 6 p.m. a suspect went into the Kentucky Fried Chicken on South Second Street and demanded cash.

On Friday at about the same time, a suspect went into the Little Caesar’s on South Fourth Street and then into the Kwik Stop on South Third Street, again demanding cash. On all three occasions, the suspect said he had a weapon.

One report states that he was wearing a ski mask and dark hood. At all three robberies, the suspect fled in a vehicle. There were no injuries reported in any of the three robberies. An undetermined amount of cash was taken.

“We believe they are possibly related,” Ironton Police Chief Jim Carey said. “We are checking into similarities. With the holiday season picking up, people need to take more precautions.”
