The Campbell County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help to track down an armed robbery suspect who claims he committed that crime to help his family.

The suspect held up the cashier at Big O's Gas Station and Convenient Store along State Highway 63 just after 10 p.m. Thursday. The masked man apologized several times during the stick up.

The sheriff's office says the man ran away once he left.

Deputies believe he got in the passenger side of a white Ford Explorer down the road and took off with another person.

If you have a tip in this case, authorities want to hear from you at 423-562-7446.
