Gunman robs pawn shop in Taylor Mill, escapes

Stolen car might have been used in getaway

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        TAYLOR MILL — Police are looking for a man who robbed Quick Cash Pawn Shop at gunpoint at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday.

        A clerk told police that a man wearing a gray hooded sweat shirt and a white mask walked into the Taylor Mill Road store with a pistol and demanded cash and jewelry. The robber forced customers to lie on the floor. No one was injured.

        The suspect is described as white and 6-foot-2 with a thin build.

        He was seen fleeing in a late '80s Chevrolet Monte Carlo.

        A car matching that description was later found abandoned on the westbound entrance ramp of Interstate 275. It had been reported stolen from Cincinnati.

        The Taylor Mill Road shop is the same pawn shop where another clerk feigned a heart attack and shot two would-be robbers in April 1998.

        The teen-agers recovered from their gunshot wounds and were convicted, along with an accomplice, of robbery.
