Two men were apprehended Friday, Jan. 18, by Kentucky State Police after allegedly robbing the Campbellsburg Cowboy's at knifepoint.

Jesse Brian Waller, 24, of Key Largo, Fla., and Jason Butcher, 34, of Grove City, Ohio, each were charged with first degree robbery.

According to a press release from KSP, the store's clerk called post-5 to report the robbery just after 3:30 a.m. Friday morning.

"The clerk advised that a white male entered the store, and he requested to use the restroom," the press release states. After using the bathroom, the suspect pulled a knife and demanded money. After taking the money, the suspect left in a white vehicle, heading for the interstate. The suspects were located and apprehended in Gallatin County near the Boone County line by Troopers Dusty Corbin and Justin Sams for speeding and driving under the influence.

Further investigation led the lead investigator in the robbery, Trooper Tim Vinal, to charge the duo with the robbery as well.

In addition to first degree robbery, Waller was charged with terroristic threatening, menacing and alcohol intoxication, and Butcher was charged with speeding, driving under the influence - first offense, and possession of an open container of alcohol.

Both suspects are lodged in the Carroll County Regional Detention Center.
