LCSO seeking information in burglary cases

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — A crashed-in front door and a missing quarter machine.

Those were the key elements of the investigation into two store burglaries over the weekend that has police seeking information on the culprits responsible.

Now police are searching for a suspect — 35-year-old Robbie Baker. Baker is the key suspect in the investigation into the burglaries and is 5 feet, 8 inches tall, approximately 190 pounds, with brown hair and blue eyes. Baker reportedly was driving a black Pontiac Sunfire with a sunroof with the Kentucky license plate number 223-PAB.

The burglaries occurred early Friday morning, May 16, at Glenview Market, one mile north of London, on North Laurel Road, and at Speedy Mart on Ky. 229 around 3 a.m.  In both cases, a car crashed into the front doors of the businesses to gain entry, and then stole a quarter machine from the stores.

Anyone with any information regarding the whereabouts of Robbie Baker is urged to contact the Laurel County Sheriff’s Office at 606-878-6600 or Laurel Dispatch at 606-878-7000. Callers can remain anonymous.

Detective Josh Scott is leading the investigation.
