Bank Robbery Suspect Arrested After Chase

Lexington Police arrested a suspect in the city's latest bank robbery late Wednesday night.

Police received a tip that someone spotted Dannie Dale Byrd on Royalty Court, off Waller Avenue.

When police arrived, they say Byrd ran from them.

Police finally caught Byrd on Transcript Avenue.

Byrd was wanted for the robbery of Traditional Bank in the Lansdowne Shoppes Saturday morning.

Police say Byrd, who they say was seen in surveillance pictures, walked into the bank and handed a teller a note, demanding money.

Byrd is scheduled to appear in court Thursday for an arraignment.
