Lexington police release new photos from January bank robbery

February 14, 2013 

The Lexington Division of Police released new photos Thursday as part of a search for the man who robbed a US Bank on Richmond Road.

On Jan. 28, employees told police the suspect entered the bank behind a teller who was returning from lunch. He pointed a dark colored semi-automatic pistol at one of the tellers and asked for money, a news release said. The tellers gave him money and he left, heading east.

Since first releasing the photograph of the suspect police have received dozens of tips, however, none of these has led to an arrest.

Anyone with information about the suspect's identity, or his whereabouts is asked to call police at (859)258-3600, or the Robbery/Homicide Unit at (859)258-3700 or Bluegrass Crime Stoppers at (859)253-2020.
