An Athens man has been charged with
aggravate robbery after he allegedly robbed the Tobacco Warehouse in
Madisonville Friday afternoon.
Madisonville Police Sgt. Adam Russell
said a man with a handgun walked into the store on New Highway 68 at
5:16 p.m. and demanded money. Video surveillance cameras showed the
man to be wearing a black sweatshirt with yellow writing, tan cargo
shorts and black flip-flops.
Video from outside the store showed the
man had been dropped off by someone driving a white four-door car.
Police found the car the next day with
two people inside and received consent to search it. They found the
black shirt in the car and the two people inside the car said Joshuah
James Curt Moses, 27, County Road 135, Athens, had been wearing the
shirt, but apparently were unaware he had robbed the store.
Madisonville Police Chief Gregg Breeden
said officers picked up Moses without any trouble shortly thereafter.
Moses is charged with aggravated
robbery and theft.
