GLASGOW, Ky. (WBKO) UPDATED 6:45 PM -- It only took a few minutes for the man to walk into the store on Grandview Avenue Sunday and leave with cash in hand. Surveillance footage shows just how scary the entire thing was for the store clerk at 2 AM.

"I think it's sad that our society has dipped to that level."

That's the feeling most people in Glasgow are sharing after a busy gas station in the middle of town was robbed at gunpoint Sunday.

"First thing we did was check on the well being of the clerk and the people inside. We called in our K-9 Officer and we had several other officers doing searches throughout the community," said Chief Guy Turcotte.

Those searches turned up empty, but surveillance from almost every angle shows the man coming inside the store and getting the clerks attention before pulling out a gun.

After getting the cash, he makes his way to the door before pulling his gun out one more time pointing it at the clerk.

"The gentlemen was approximately 5'8" to 5'10", weighing 230 to 250 LBS. He was wearing a makeshift mask which we believe was out of a t-shirt," added Chief Turcotte.

Authorities said he was also wearing a red backpack and black gloves.

People who drive and shop near the Speedway aren't as afraid as they are upset with the man's actions.

"You go through town and everybody's got help wanted signs up. There's jobs out there but nobody wants to work. They want to go out here and rob other individuals for a living, that earn their money doing the hard work," said Don Gossett.

Police said it's too early to name any suspects but they are continuing to follow strong leads.

If you have any information call Glasgow Police at 270-651-5151.
