Armed Robbery Suspect Arrested

Police have confirmed they arrested the man they believe robbed a Letcher County bank at gunpoint.

Just after eight Wednesday morning, police say a man wearing a mask walked into the community trust bank in Jeremiah, and demanded money.

The incident left those in the community on edge.

“This is our hometown bank, so it concerns us. That's where I do my banking at and we know these ladies on a first name basis. So you get concerned if somebody's down here sticking a gun into their face,” Ocsar McCown said.

Police have not released the suspects name or any other information concerning the robbery.
