Escaped Bank Robbery Suspect Could Be Up to Old Tricks

Police investigating a bank robbery in Falmouth on Wednesday are looking at surveillance tapes to figure out if an escaped bank robbery suspect is responsible.

On July 21, Jeffery Pratt escaped during a transfer from Scott County Jail to Circuit Court proceedings in Robertson County.

State police say they are looking into to possibility Pratt may have held up the Falmouth bank.

According to Harrison County Sheriff's Office Detective Paul Olin, it was Pratt.

"The video is a bit blurry, but I am 95 percent sure it was him. He had some specific mannerisms with his hands and arms I noticed when I was interviewing him about the Berry bank robbery," Olin said.

Olin is familiar with Pratt from past cases in Harrison County and believes he may be hiding out in the area.
