Lexington police searching for man who allegedly robbed Central Bank at gunpoint

More than five months after the robbery of a Central Bank, Lexington police have identified a suspect.

Lexington police have issued a warrant for Jordan D. Washington, 31, for first-degree robbery in connection to the May 13 holdup of the Central Bank on West New Circle Road.

Washington allegedly entered the bank about 9:15 a.m. wearing a gray hoodie with a mask and demanded money with a handgun, police said. The suspect took cash from the bank clerk and fled in a vehicle, which was later found wrecked near the bank, according to police.

Washington should be considered armed and dangerous, police said.
