WYTHE COUNTY – The truck stop at I-81 Travel Plaza in Wythe County was robbed of $400 Thursday night, but the suspect remains at large.
Wythe County Sheriff Doug King said a white male, dressed in black and carrying a black or blue pistol, entered the truck stop, at Exit 86, just before 10 p.m. demanding money. After getting the money, he fled on foot in a northerly direction.
Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries was brought to the scene with a K-9 unit to track the suspect. King said the dog tracked a short distance and stopped, indicating the suspect had gotten into a vehicle.
No one was injured during the robbery.
