Sheriff releases description of suspect in second Lions Den armed robbery

Three law enforcement agencies responded to the Lions Den robbery.
BUCKHORN, Mo. (Dec. 16, 2009 UPDATED 8:50 a.m.) — Just days after Pulaski County deputies lost a case in which they tried but failed to prosecute a woman accused of robbing the Lion’s Den adult store, the same business has been hit with another armed robbery.

Shortly before 1 a.m., sheriff’s deputies received a report of an armed robbery and are currently on the scene of the Lion’s Den, along with backup from the Missouri State Highway Patrol and a canine unit from the Waynesville Police Department. Little information was immediately available, but more details will be provided as they become available.

Sheriff J.B. King issued a press release Wednesday morning with a description of the suspected robber.

According to King, store employees said a white male approximately 6’-3” weighing 190 pounds with a brown mustache and goatee had used a knife to rob the store of money. The suspect wore a white baseball cap, light colored jeans and a green Carhart style coat with a white T-shirt with a Chevrolet emblem, and was driving a mid 1990’s Buick Regal or Century that was purple in color.

King said the suspect has not yet been located. Anyone with information on this robbery may contact the sheriff's department at (573) 774-6196.
