Police say Louisville man wore same clothes during several armed robberies

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police arrested a man Tuesday afternoon after authorities say he robbed several businesses over a period of several weeks.

According to arrest reports, on April 12, 22-year-old Kamron Goff walked into the Circle K at 4100 Dixie Highway, near 7th Street Road, just before 5 a.m. Police say he fired a revolver near a female employee, and told her he was going to kill her. He then demanded cash, cigarettes and cigars.

Goff was arrested days later, on April 17, by Shively Police, after he was identified as a suspect in several other robberies within Metro Louisville. Those robberies included:

  • A March 22 robbery at the Circle K at 5000 Shepherdsville Road.
  • A March 29 robbery of a Super 8 Motel at 4800 Preston Highway. Police say Goff had an accomplice, and three shots were fired while two victims were present.
  • An April 10 robbery at the Five Star gas station at 9501 Cane Run Road, in which Goff allegedly fired a shot. Police say Goff left a fingerprint at the scene that was traced back to him.
  • An April 14 robbery of the Circle K at 12415 Taylorsville Road, in which Goff and an accomplice allegedly fired a shot, before taking business cash.

Police say he wore the same clothing in at least some of the robberies -- and even appeared on Facebook wearing the same clothing. He also used the same revolver in at least some of the robberies, according to the arrest reports.

Officers say they were able to use evidence -- including surveillance footage, forensic evidence, fingerprint evidence and cell phone data -- to track Goff down.

Both Louisville Metro Police and Shively Police were involved in Goff's arrest. He is charged with five counts of first-degree robbery and is being held in Louisville Metro Corrections.
