ALLEN — Kentucky State Police has released surveillance photos taken during a bank robbery earlier this week.
Police are hoping the photos showing a heavily-disguised man will nonetheless trigger something in someone’s mind that might provide a clue to catching the robber.
As reported earlier this week, police received a report at 1:41 p.m. that the Allen branch of Citizens National Bank had been robbed. According to information obtained at the scene, a man entered the bank, brandishing a knife and demanding money. After getting an undisclosed amount of cash, he then fled on foot.
The male is described as approximately 5 feet, 6 inches tall, with a thin build. He was wearing a white thermal shirt, blue jeans, gloves and a black hood covering his face and head.
No one was injured during the incident.
The incident remains under investigation by KSP Det. Tony Tackett. Police ask anyone with information to contact Kentucky State Police Post 9 in Pikeville at (606) 433-7711 or (800) 222-5555.
