Phyllis Greenough: Robbed at gunpoint, but still at work

2014-02-04 - 14332 Burkesville Rd, Breeding, KY - Photo By Ed Waggener. Just 15 days ago, Phyllis Greenough was standing at this very counter when a man waring a hoodie came in and told her to put the money in a bag. "Are you joking?" she asked him. She said he pulled a gun, cocked it, and said, "No." He got all the money in the cash draw, hurriedly left the building. She didn't watch what he did, she said, "I was busy calling 911. It was over in 47 seconds," she said. She said she learned that the robber ran to a waiting four wheeler where another individual was waiting, took off and fire a gun into the air (maybe not in that exact order. She's just hoping the case isn't forgotten and the the two are caught. Breeding has been her home for the last eight years. She's originally from Homer, in upstate New York, between Syracuse and Binghampton. She isn't at all scared after the experience, she said. "I survived cancer, I can survive this." Apparently, Tuesday, when this photo was taken, nobody else in the community was afraid, either. Brooks Davis's store was packed, and Phyllis and one other cook were dishing out some real good hamburgers, fish sandwiches and fries as fast as they could make them. The robbery is being investigated by the Adair County Sheriff's office. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Adair County Sheriff's office at 270-384-2776.
