A Trimble County man was arrested the morning of June 11 following a robbery the night before at the Marathon station in Campbellsburg, Ky.

Kentucky State Police Post 5 dispatchers received a 911 call at 10:49 p.m. advising that someone had just robbed the Marathon and fled on foot from the store, according to a news release. The worker at the Marathon advised the subject demanded money, but did not brandish a weapon. Troopers set up a perimeter in the area, but were unable to find the subject. 

After viewing security footage, authorities identified Clint Hayes, 35, of Bedford, as the alleged perpetrator. Contact was made with Hayes’ wife, Camie Bramblette, at their residence on Webb Lane. Bramblette, who is an employee at the Marathon, admitted to planning the robbery with her husband but advised she had changed her mind and asked him not to rob the store, according to police.

Hayes was later located at the home on Webb Lane. As troopers approached the residence on foot, Hayes attempted to flee in a minivan. After allegedly nearly striking two troopers, Hayes was arrested. He is charged with second-degree robbery and two counts of wanton endangerment of a police officer. He was lodged at the Carroll County Detention Center. Trooper Barrett Brewer is leading the ongoing investigation.
