Frankfort Police are still looking for a man who robbed a bank Friday afternoon in the Franklin Square shopping center.

Franklin Police Major Fred Deaton said that at 3:33 p.m., police got a call from bank employees, who said that a man had come in and displayed what appeared to be a handgun and demanded cash.

After tellers filled a plastic bag with money, the man fled on foot in the direction of Carino’s restaurant.

Police searched the shopping center and the adjacent wooded area using K-9s, but were unable to locate the suspect.

He is described as a white male, around 30 years old, about 6 feet tall and weighing from 185 to 200 pounds. He was wearing navy blue work pants, a tan jacket, and a black ball cap. He has black hair and a black moustache.

The man should be considered armed and dangerous. On the bank’s surveillance video, he is seen pointing what looks like a handgun at tellers and customers alike, who have their hands up.

Frankfort Police are asking that anyone who has any information about this crime should contact them at 502-875-8523. Information may also be given anonymously by calling Frankfort Crime Stoppers at 502-875-8684 or on the Web at www.frankfortcrimestoppers.com. Crime Stoppers may pay a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest in this case.
