CRESCENT SPRINGS, Ky. — Police released photos on Friday of the men accused of robbing a photography store earlier this month.

Three masked men robbed K&R Photographics at 12:25 p.m. on May 22. The men entered the store and threw the co-owner to the ground so hard she broke her arm, police said. They left carrying thousands of dollars in camera equipment.

The suspects left in a silver, four-door Volkswagen. A Villa Hills police cruiser took video of the car on its dashcam when a police officer was conducting a traffic stop prior to being dispatched.

The crime was shocking even to Villa Hills police Sgt. JJ Bird, who said it was the first business robbery his department had experienced since it began patrolling Crescent Springs in mid-2018.

“To throw somebody in their 70s down on the floor like that and break their arm, they’re pretty brazen,” he said.

Anyone with information about the attack to contact Villa Hills investigators at 859-341-3535.
