Police arrest suspect in Friday afternoon Wilson & Muir Bank branch robbery


Friday, May 3, 2019 — The Bardstown Police Department have apprehended a suspect who is believed to have robbed the Culpepper Street branch of Wilson & Muir Bank and Trust.

City police and the Nelson County Sheriff’s Office were notified of the robbery just before 2 p.m. Friday afternoon. The suspect left the bank in what was described as either a white PT Cruiser or HHR SUV-type vehicle.

The woman who was identified as the robbery suspect was not carrying a visible weapon. She was described as a white woman who was wearing a light gray top with pink lettering and dark pants.

In less than five minutes from the initial call, a city police officer reported spotting the vehicle the suspect was driving and began following it while other officers began to head in that direction.

The suspect turned off on Spencer Mattingly Lane, and police apprehended him off the road in an open field.

Officers are still on the scene and at the bank conducting their investigation. More information will be forthcoming as it becomes available.
