LPD searching for suspect in liquor store robbery

June 7, 2008


Lawrence police officers are seeking a suspect in a possible robbery of Dangermond Retail Liquor, 1010 N. Third St., shortly after 10:30 p.m. Saturday.

The suspect fled on foot behind the Presto Convenience Store near the Kansas Turnpike. Officers were calling in a K-9 unit that has been on duty at Wakarusa Music and Camping Festival. It is unknown if the attempted robbery was successful.

Danny Copp, a Westar Energy employee, was walking into Presto Convenience Store when he saw the suspect running on foot through the store parking lot. He also said he saw a man in a Subaru speed from Dangermond to the convenience store driving after the suspect.

"I saw a guy take off running toward the hotel," Copp said. "The next thing you know you see all these cop cars driving by."

More details as they become available.

I wonder if it's the same guy who's hit other liquor stores in town this year (six or so I think). This has been happening way too much, and as far as I know (anyone, please correct me if I'm wrong) in none of these robberies have the cops nabbed ANYONE!
