LANCASTER - A man suspected of robbing banks in Lancaster, Danville and Nicholasville heard testimony against him Wednesday in Garrard District Court.
Judge Bill Oliver ruled that the evidence presented at the preliminary hearing was sufficient to refer Ricky Pittman's case to a grand jury.
Pittman, 38, is being held in the Lincoln County Regional Jail, charged with the May 18 robbery of Whitaker Bank on the Lancaster Public Square.
He has not yet been charged with the robbery of Fort Knox Federal Credit Union in Danville Square or Farmers Bank in Peddlers Mall in Nicholasville. Officials are still investigating these robberies, Garrard County Attorney Jeff Moss said.
