Kentucky Fugitive To Be Featured On America's Most Wanted

A northern Kentucky jail escapee will get more national attention this weekend.

America's Most Wanted will feature Anthony Artrip on its program this Saturday.

The U.S. Marshal's have moved Artrip onto their top 15 list.

Artrip has been on the run since June when he broke out of the Grant County Detention center.

Since that escape, police say he's robbed banks in West Virginia, Michigan and North Carolina.

Most recently, Artrip is the prime suspect in a robbery that took place in Mt Airy, North Carolina.

Police think Tony Artrip held up a bank there on Friday.

Artrip is originally from Ashland.
