After almost three weeks after the robbery of Farmers Bank in the Peddlers Mall Plaza, suspect Ricky Allen Pittman, 38, of Lancaster sits behind bars after being taken into custody last Thursday morning in Elizabethtown.
Along with the charges he faces in Nicholasville, Pittman was also wanted in connection with the May 18 robbery of Whitaker Bank in Lancaster and the May 24 robbery of Fort Knox Federal Credit Union in Danville.
Nicholasville police chief Barry Waldrop said Pittman would most likely be brought back to one of the areas in which a robbery occurred, but as of Friday morning he
wasn't sure which area would lodge Pittman.
Pittman was arraigned by video in Garrard County District Court.
If convicted, Pittman faces three counts of first-degree robbery, Class B felonies carrying a 10-20 year prison sentence each.
Due to the nature of the crime, Waldrop said the case could go federal if the FBI chooses to take it over.
