Man Claims He Was Falsely Accused in Bank Robbery Case

There's a strange twist into a Scott County bank robbery that occurred Monday.

The suspect accused of robbing the Integra Bank in Georgetown was arrested and sits behind bars after police arrested him in Bourbon County Monday night.

Michael Roe is accused of walking into that bank in Georgetown Monday and threatening to set off a bomb.

Roe's cousin was nearby at the time and he says he became an unknowing getaway driver after being tricked.

Roe's cousin claims he didn't know what was going on when his cousin asked him for a ride and says he had no idea his cousin just robbed the bank.

Scott County police do say now the cousin is no longer a suspect.

Michael Roe will be charged in Scott County later this week for robbery.
