LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A New Albany man was arrested Friday after allegedly trying to rob a gas station with pruning shears.

According to an arrest slip, Radford Breeding, 38, went into the BP on Newburg Road, armed with a knife and large pruning shears. He apparently demanded money from the clerk. When the clerk refused, Breeding used the shears to cut all the wires to the cash register.

Breeding then fled, but police caught him in the parking lot.

He is being charged with robbery.
