For the second time in seven months, the Bank of Buffalo’s main branch in LaRue County has been robbed.
According to Kentucky State Police, a man entered the bank at 11:45 a.m. Wednesday and handed a note to the teller.
The note demanded money and the man claimed he was armed, according to police. KSP spokesman Norman Chaffins said the suspect never used a weapon though it was implied he had one.
Police said the man left with an undisclosed amount of cash. He was inside the bank for only a few seconds and fled on foot.
In a news release, state police describe the suspect as a white man, approximately 6 feet tall and 30 years old. He was last seen wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans and work gloves.
Detective Chad Taylor is leading the investigation. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call KSP Post 4 at (270) 766-5078 or (800) 222-5555.
The same branch on Ky. 61 was robbed July 6.
The suspect — described as a white man, approximately 6 feet tall and 230 pounds — entered the bank at 12:51 p.m., according to police. He appeared to be armed with a handgun and fled in a vehicle with an undisclosed amount of cash.
On Thursday, Chaffins said police have not identified the suspect in the July robbery.
