Nicholasville police on Wednesday arrested a man whom they charged with two armed robberies that occurred last year at a check-cashing business.
Michael Allen Destefano, 57, was arrested at his Harrodsburg home and charged with two counts of first-degree robbery, police said Thursday.
Destefano is charged in connection with two armed robberies of Cash Express on North Main Street in Nicholasville that happened in August and September 2010.
Nicholasville police spokesman Sgt. Scott Harvey said an informant supplied information that led police to Destefano.
Nicholasville Police Chief Barry Waldrop commended detectives in the case.
"It is not every day that you get to make an arrest in a case that is this old," Waldrop said. "They never gave up, and their hard work got this suspect off the street."
