Armed robbery mars holiday weekend

Kingston police responded to an armed robbery at the Rocky Top at 935 E. Race St. Sunday morning.

Cashier Michelle Birmley told police that a man in camouflage clothing entered the store around 1:30 a.m. and pointed a black pistol at her and demanded money.

“While she attempted to open the register, the suspect walked around the counter and removed the money from the drawer,” the report said. “The suspect then ordered Ms. Birmley to open the safe under the register, and Ms. Birmley complied.”
