LAFOLLETTE (WATE) - The Campbell County Sheriff's Office is searching for a man suspected of robbing a gas station and convenience store Thursday night.

Sheriff Robbie Goins says a man entered Big O's Gas Station on General Carl Stiner Highway just after 10 p.m. Thursday night wearing a mask.

The suspect pulled out a gun and ordered the cashier to give him all the money in the cash drawer.

The suspect then ran from the store toward Clear Coal Company where deputies believe the suspect got into an early 2000s model white Ford Explorer driven by someone else.

It's believed they then fled westbound on State Highway 63.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or call the sheriff's office at (423) 562-7446.
