Surveillance Video Helps Arrest Lexington Bank Robber

Police say a surveillance video of a car helped them find and arrest 27-year-old Anthony Garrison. Garrison is accused of robbing the Whitaker Bank on Paris Pike Tuesday morning.

Police say a patrol officer located the vehicle sometime Tuesday night at the Sportsman Hotel.

The patrol officer spotted the car and called for back-up. Garrison was soon arrested and charged with the bank robbery.

Officers say Garrison waited in line with other customers Tuesday morning. Police say when it was his turn, he told a clerk he had a weapon and started demanding cash.

Police say when they stormed into his room at the Sportsman Motel they found him trying to get rid of the money so there wouldn't be any evidence.
