-A A +A


CANNELTON – The Cannelton Police Department is investigating a theft from a local business and is requesting the public’s help in identifying the suspect or suspects.

Officers were called to Tom’s Circle S, located in the 200 Block of S. Seventh Street Friday at approximately 8:05 p.m. The clerk at the store said a black male, approximately 5-feet, 10-inches tall wearing a black T-shirt and a dark colored baseball cap entered the store.

The suspect then attempted to confuse the clerk by asking for change for large bills.  While the money was out of the cash register, in order to make the change, the suspect grabbed the money and fled the store. It is believed the suspect got into a dark blue Chevrolet passenger car, possibly a Malibu, with unknown Kentucky license plate. The vehicle was also occupied by a white female.

Anyone with information on the identities of the suspect or the female is encouraged to call the Cannelton Police Department at 547-2111 or a separate tip line at 547-9563, if they wish to remain anonymous.
