Money and cigs stolen from Shell

Sheriff’s Office seeks suspects in E.B. burglary

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — An East Bernstadt business was burglarized last week and Laurel County Sheriff’s officials are asking for the public’s help in finding the perpetrators.

The burglary occurred at the East Bernstadt Shell station on Ky. 490, four miles north of London, between late Wednesday night — February 5 — and early Thursday morning — February 6 — prior to 6 a.m. The burglars forced open the front door of the business and took an undisclosed amount of money from an ATM, money from the business and a large amount of Marlboro cigarettes. The burglars then fled through the back door.

Although sheriff’s officials have obtained the surveillance video, the public is being asked to contact the sheriff’s office with any information they may have. Anyone who might have seen a suspect vehicle or suspects in the area is asked to contact the Sheriff’s Office at (606) 864-6600 or Laurel Dispatch Center at (606) 878-7000. Callers can remain anonymous.

The investigation is being conducted by Detective Josh Scott. He was assisted at the scene by Deputies Kevin Berry and Shane Rice.
