July 28—A man sought for a robbery earlier this month at a Corbin department store was arrested Sunday morning in Laurel County.

Anthony Sizemore, 30, with his address listed as “homeless,” was charged on a Knox County warrant of arrest for first-degree robbery, first-degree wanton endangerment and fourth-degree assault.

He was jailed in the Laurel County Detention Center.

Sizemore’s arrest came around 11:44 a.m. behind a business building off Keavy Road, approximately two miles west of London.

That was after Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputies developed information on the whereabouts of a man sought for the July 17 robbery at Belk department store, in the Trademart Center on the Knox County side of Corbin.

Deputies had been following up on numerous leads on the suspect for several days. Based on their investigation, they developed a lead on Sizemore.

After a short foot chase where he tried to hide behind business buildings off Ky. 363, Sizemore was located by officers and taken into custody without incident.

Laurel County Sheriff John Root reported that allegedly in the course of committing a shoplifting theft at Belk in Corbin earlier this month, Sizemore used physical force upon another person.

That’s when he fled from the store’s loss prevention officer and shoved an elderly woman walking outside the store’s parking lot, causing her to twist her ankle and bruise her shoulder.

When the loss prevention officer and a customer approached Sizemore outside his vehicle, he threatened them with the use of a handgun by pulling a semi-automatic type gun out his waistband, pulled the slide back as if he was loading the weapon, and pointed it directly toward them, telling them to back off.

Sizemore then left the scene in a red-colored van, which came back registered to his father.

Sheriff’s Detective James Sizemore was the arresting officer. He was assisted at the Keavy Road site by Sheriff’s Sgt. John Gaylor, Sheriff’s Deputy Josh Scott, Sheriff’s Detective Charlie Loomis, U.S. Marshall Todd Hansford and London Police officers.
