Three people are in jail tonight, accused of robbing a Woodford County restaurant in the early morning hours.
Stunned neighbors watched as they were arrested inside a Midway home, and put in the back of police cruisers.
“It’s a little surprising for us because we think of Midway as a quiet safe area, so it’s kind of disconcerting to see four cop cars across the street,” said Sonya Keith.
Just before 6:00 Tuesday night, police arrested and charged Amber Larkins, Caleb Cook, and Anthony Strange in connection with the robbery.
It was an investigation that began much earlier in the morning with an armed robbery at Rachel’s Kitchen along Old Frankfort Pike.
“Two subjects that entered the store, and they got out of the store with an undetermined amount of cash,” said Sgt. Daniel Clark with the Versailles Police Department.
Police say one of the robbers lives in Midway home, and when detectives arrived, all three suspects were inside.
“For a few minutes, one of the suspects barricaded himself in the bathroom inside the residence. But just after a few minutes of talking with him, that situation was taken care of,” said Sgt. Clark.
“We’re glad they responded and took care of it quickly because we have a lot of children in the neighborhood that play around here,” said Keith.
All three are at the Woodford County Detention Center. Police also charged them in connection with kidnapping and wanton endangerment.
