Robber hits Fort Mitchell bank, escapes in sedan

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        FORT MITCHELL — Police searched Friday afternoon for a man wanted in the robbery of a Columbia Savings Bank earlier in the day.

        A man walked into the branch at 2497 Dixie Highway at 10:15 a.m. and handed a teller a note demanding money. No weapon was shown and no one was injured.

        Fort Mitchell police responded, along with the FBI. Authorities did not release the amount of money taken.

        The police do not have a detailed physical description of the robber. He was wearing a dark blue work uniform with a clip-on company employee identification badge and white athletic shoes.

        Chief Steve Hensley said neither video surveillance equipment nor witnesses got a clear look at the ID.

        The robber was seen speeding away in a cream-colored sedan, possibly a Buick or Oldsmobile. The car was last seen on Orphanage Road headed toward Interstate 275.

        The Northern Kentucky office of the FBI investigated 15 bank robberies in 2001.

        This was the third robbery this year in Boone, Campbell or Kenton counties.

        Anyone with information about the latest robbery is asked to call police at (859) 331-2823 or (859) 356-3191.
