LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - Jeffersontown Police have arrested a man authorities say participated in the attempted robbery of a liquor store.

Lawrence Thompson, 35, was arrested on Monday night after officials say he was the getaway driver during an attempted robbery of Kute's Liquors on Watterson Trail in Jeffersontown on March 27.

Police say another man entered the business while wearing a mask and armed with a gun with the intention of robbing the store. Investigators say the store clerk pulled out a gun and shot the man in the chest.

Police say Thompson admitted that he had purchased materials to clean blood from the vehicle that could be considered evidence to the crime.

Thompson is charged with robbery and tampering with physical evidence.
