Bank Robbery Suspect Released From Jail

A search is underway for an accused bank robber, who was let out of jail.

Kenneth Chandler is currently unaccounted for, and wanted on a federal indictment for bank robbery.

The 47-year-old is charged with the January robbery of the Central Bank on Harrodsburg Road. The grand jury also indicted Chandler for a bank robbery last year in Shelbyville.

Chandler was being held in the Fayette County Detention Center but was released on Wednesday. It appears jail officials were unaware of the federal indictment against Chandler and released him because the Fayette County Grand Jury declined to indict him on state charges.

Several law enforcement agencies are currently searching for the man. He is now wanted on federal charges or armed robbery and possession of a firearm.
