'Average Joe' strikes again

The Associated Press

        LOUISVILLE — The bank robber dubbed “Average Joe” because of his unassuming appearance made another hit Monday.

        Police say a man thought to be “Average Joe” robbed a PNC Bank just before noon. The man is a sus pect in at least 12 other robberies since February 1998.

        Four were in Greater Cincinnati: one in Crestview Hills, two in Florence and one in Fairfield.

        Most of the robberies have been along the Interstate 75 corridor between Lexington and Dayton, Ohio. Seven of the robberies have occurred in Kentucky. The rest were in Ohio.

        The robber is described as a white man about 35 years old, 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall, with a medium build and short, dark hair.

        Authorities are asking anyone with information to call the FBI at (502) 583-3941 or Crime Stoppers at (502) 582-CLUE.
