ELIZABETHTOWN - A man suspected of robbing banks in Danville, Lancaster and Nicholasville was arrested without incident Thursday by Kentucky State Police.
Ricky Allen Pittman, 38, of Lexington, was apprehended after police received information that he was in the Elizabethtown area.
KSP Detectives Monte Owens and Mark Young had been involved in a lengthy investigation into Pittman's whereabouts relating to the robberies, including the May 19 hit on Whitaker Bank on the Public Square in Lancaster.
The second hold-up occurred at Farmers Bank in Peddlers Mall in Nicholasville the next day, with the third being at Fort Knox Federal Credit Union in Danville just four days later, making three bank robberies in six days.
Steve Pavey, public information officer for the KSP Elizabethtown post, said Pittman was being followed as he was traveling on Bluegrass Parkway and was stopped about one mile east of Elizabethtown.
