Kentucky State Police are seeking information after the New Liberty branch of First Farmers Bank and Trust was robbed Saturday morning.
Dispatchers at KSP Post 5 Campbellsburg received a call of an alarm coming from the bank, located at 460 U.S. Hwy. 227 N., at 11:46 a.m. Saturday.
According to a KSP press release, video from bank cameras showed the alleged perpetrator entering the bank and going to a teller window. The subject reportedly then told the tellers to give him “all their money.”
After getting the money, the perpetrator fled the bank in an unknown direction.
The subject did not produce a weapon during the robbery.
KSP Post 5 Public Affairs Trooper Brad Arterburn said police are unsure of how much money the perpetrator got away with.
“We’re not sure if he was on foot or not,” Arterburn said. “(Bank employees) said they did not see a vehicle and when he left he just kind of ran out. He may have had a vehicle close by, but they (the bank employees) never saw one in the parking lot.”
First Farmers Bank and Trust Executive Vice-President David Lyons declined to comment on the incident, citing the ongoing investigation.
Tellers described the perpetrator as a white male who appeared to be in his early 20s, approximately 5’8” and 140 lbs. He was wearing a dark, hooded sweatshirt and dark pants at the time of the robbery.
KSP Detective Steve Goodale is leading the ongoing investigation. Goodale was assisted by the Owen County Sheriff’s Department and the Owenton Police Department.
Anyone with information on the perpetrator can contact KSP at 502-532-6363.
