Employee Robbed While Making Night-Deposit

A Eastern Kentucky fast food employee is robbed while making a bank deposit and it was all caught on tape.

Police say a Lee's Famous Recipe employee was making a deposit Tuesday night at the People's Bank on East Main Street in Hazard when a man grabbed the cash out of her hands and took off. Police say they found 34 year old Robert Fullwood nearby and surveillance video showed Fullwood at the scene of the crime.

"We were holding him for question then bank employees arrived from People's Bank. We viewed the surveillance tape inside the bank and made a positive ID of the male subject we had in our custody. Then we went ahead and places him under arrest," said Joe Engle with the Hazard Police Department.

Robert Fullwood is at the Kentucky River Regional Jail charged with first degree robbery.
