NEWS RELEASE
SUBJECT: K.P.D. Investigating Armed Robbery of Kingsport Moose Lodge
DATE: November 9, 2015
CASE #: 15-024356
GENERAL NARRATIVE
On November 8, 2015 at approximately 9:30 PM, Kingsport Police Patrol Officers were dispatched to the Kingsport Moose Lodge, located at 301 East Main Street in Kingsport, in reference to an armed robbery that has just occurred. Responding officers spoke with a female victim who advised that as she was locking up the lodge for the evening, she was confronted at the front door by a masked suspect.

The suspect was armed with what appeared to be a small handgun. He pointed the gun at her, shoved her back into the building, and demanded that she open the safe. After emptying the contents of the safe into a trash bag, he fled the scene on foot in an unknown direction of travel with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The suspect is believed to be a white male, between 25 and 30 years of age, over 6 feet tall, and weighing between 180 and 200 pounds. He was last seen wearing camouflage coveralls, a black ski mask, and either black or brown gloves.

Anyone who has any information which may help detectives identify the suspect or assist them with their investigation is asked to contact the K.P.D. Criminal Investigations Division at 423-229-9429 or call Kingsport Central Dispatch at 423-246-9111.
