Lexington police say they were foiled. They first got a call of a bank robbery in the Hamburg area. They quickly learned it was a fake call.
Meanwhile, police were called to the Traditional Bank on Tates Creek.
Tellers there say the robber demanded money. He was wearing a suit, but also had bandages covering his face and hands. You can see in surveillance pictures, he even has a woman's kerchief over his head.
Police believe the robber was the same man who called in the fake robbery in Hamburg. The prank worked long enough for the suspect to get away.
