LOUISA, Ky. — A suspect has been named in the robbery of a Lawrence County drugstore last month.

Louisa Police are asking the public’s help in finding 33-year-old Jeremy Ray Burris. He is believed to be the suspect who entered the Louisa Walgreens on April 27, dressed in white shorts with no shoes or shirt, and brandishing a large knife.

That man demanded different types of medicine, then soiled himself as he fled the store. He then fled the scene in a Nissan Xterra which had been reported storlen out of Wayne County, W.Va.

Police say Burris should be considered armed and dangerous.

They ask anyone who knows Burris’s whereabouts to call 911.
