Police searching for Git-N-Go burglar

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — A burglary at an east London business on Sunday night has police searching for the culprit and asking for the public’s help.

Surveillance video of the man who entered the Git-N-Go, one mile east of London, around midnight Sunday by cutting a hole in the roof has been released by the Laurel County Sheriff’s Office. The suspect is described as a white male, approximately 6’2” with a goatee and wearing camouflage coveralls and a white hoodie.

The man set off audible alarms when he entered the building and he fled the scene, but not before the video surveillance captured his image.

Sheriff John Root said the sheriff’s office’s Facebook page and media releases have been beneficial in solving area crimes. During a Town Hall meeting on Monday night, Root said tips from citizens in the community have played major roles in the arrests involving two separate crimes within the past week.

“We can’t always be everywhere and that’s why we are enlisting the public’s help,” Root said. “The people in the county have given us numerous tips about crimes and we want them to continue to do that. They are the eyes and ears in helping solve crimes.”

Anyone with information on the suspect is urged to contact the Laurel County Sheriff’s Office at (606) 864-6600 or Laurel Dispatch at (606) 8788-7000. Callers may remain anonymous.
