Police need help identifying man who robbed Bath bank

State police were seeking help to identify a suspect in a bank robbery that happened several months ago in Bath County.

On Wednesday, investigators released surveillance images of the robbery at the Salt Lick Deposit Bank.

Police say a white male brandishing a pistol entered the bank on April 20 and demanded cash from a teller. The teller put cash and two red dye packs into a bag. The dye packs exploded when the robber left the bank, according to a news release issued Wednesday.

The man, who was about 50, had a slender build and salt-and-pepper hair. He was about 5-foot-10 to 6 feet and was wearing blue jeans, a long-sleeved denim shirt, a University of Kentucky baseball cap and gold-rimmed glasses.

Police said anyone with information about the robbery should call state police detective Toby Gardner at 606-784-4127.
