Detective: Fugitive Responsible For Bank Robbery

Police in northern Kentucky are now looking into the possibility that a man who escaped from police custody has held up a bank.

Jeffrey Pratt escaped back in July 21st. He was being taken to a hearing in Robertson County when he knocked the deputy jailer down and ran to his mother's car, which was parked nearby.

Now, a Harrison County Detective thinks Pratt is responsible for a bank robbery in Falmouth, earlier this week.

The Ledger-Independent reports a detective familiar with Pratt says he's 95% sure the surveillance pictures from that robbery caught Pratt in the act.

Pratt was indicted recently in connection with a back robbery in Harrison County from last October. He's also accused of holding up the Integra Bank in Mount Olivet.
