The Duke and Duchess gas station off the Adamsville exit just east of Zanesville fell victim to armed robbery early morning Aug. 15.

The Muskingum County Sheriff’s Office said a white male suspect entered the gas station around 5 a.m. and revealed a gun in his waistband to the female clerk.

He did demand money and escaped with an undisclosed amount. Sheriff Matt Lutz said they did recover a vehicle believed to be used in connection with the robbery. It had been reported stolen in the Crooksville area. The robbery remains under investigation at this time. Lutz asked that anyone with information about the incident, contact the Muskingum County Sheriff’s Office.
