Three businesses robbed by gunman

DRY RIDGE - Three Northern Kentucky businesses were robbed within two hours of each other Tuesday evening. In each case, the gunman had a similar description.

At 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, a gunman entered the Liz Claiborne store on Fashion Ridge Road and demanded money, according to the Grant County Sheriff's Department.

The robber was described as a white man, 6-foot-1, 240 pounds in his late 20s or early 30s. He was wearing a gray long-sleeve T-shirt, blue jeans, work boots, a white wig, blue baseball cap and sunglasses.

The description was similar to a man wanted in the robbery of a Donatos Pizza in Erlanger and a Subway restaurant in Florence earlier in the day. Witnesses in all three holdups described the robber as having bulging eyes. Anyone with information can call Deputy M.L. Garvey at (859) 824-3333.
