The Pickett County Sheriff’s Department investigated a report of armed robbery at Dale Hollow Shell at approximately 8:35 p.m. on January 28th.
According to the report, Cynthia Phillips of Burnside, Ky., stated that an unknown white male approached her in the parking lot with a gun and demanded drugs, then grabbed her purse and stole $975 from her wallet.
