Police issue warrant after finding car involved in Louisa bank robbery
LOUISA, Ky. (WYMT) - A vehicle used during a robbery at a bank Thursday was found by police, and a warrant is now out for one man’s arrest.
“Myself and the officers responded to reports of a bank robbery at the Citizens Bank of Kentucky in the Louisa Plaza,” Chief Greg Fugitt said. “We worked on the investigation. Detective Hunter James and Sergeant Steven Wilburn followed up on many leads that we were getting.”
Those leads led to a vehicle. According to the Louisa Police Department, evidence found at the scene and in the vehicle was enough to issue a warrant for Seth Garrett Frank, 33, of Louisa.
According to Fugitt, the help from the public in response to the department’s Facebook post was invaluable.
“You don’t want your leads to go cold, so you try to hurry up and get that out and follow up on them,” Fugitt said. “We just want to appreciate everybody that did give us information to help us resolve this and solve the case.”
Officers believe Frank was the man who passed a threatening note before leaving the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash.
The police department says Frank used to live in Mason, West Virginia.
If you have information on Franks whereabouts, you are asked to contact your local 911 center.
Chief Fugitt would like to thank all the people that came forward with tips and information that helped speed up the process of this case. LPD was assisted by the Lawrence County Sheriff Office, Wayne County Sheriff Office and the West Virginia State Police and the Fort Gay Police Department.
