LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Police say they found a Kentucky robbery suspect hiding in a trash can.
Lexington Police say officers found 23-year-old Raymond J. Jones in a city waste bin Friday. He's charged with first-degree robbery and giving an officer a false name, along with an unrelated theft warrant.
Police say they responded Friday afternoon to an armed robbery at a Metro PCS store. An employee said a masked man with a black backpack pointed a gun at the employee as he approached the counter, demanding cell phones and other items.
Witnesses told police the man fled on a bicycle.
Police say they found Jones in a waste bin on the curb, and his backpack with the stolen goods was in a recycling bin.
Jones was taken to Fayette County Detention Center.
