Date of News Release: 10/24/2005
(Richmond, KY) - The Kentucky State Police Post 7 Richmond is currently investigating a bank robbery that occurred at the Waco Branch of the Peoples Bank of Madison County. At 0835, a male suspect walked into the bank and implied that he was armed and demanded money. The suspect left with an undisclosed amount of money. The suspect left driving east on KY 52 in a white Dodge pickup truck. The pickup was later determined to be stolen from a local used car lot. The pickup was later found abandoned several miles from the scene. Through investigation, it was determined that the suspect changed vehicles after the robbery and was now driving a grey 1967 Ford pickup. The grey Ford pickup was spotted by officers of the Ravenna and Irvine Police Departments. The officers conducted a felony stop on the vehicle and took the suspect (Marcus Todd Jones, age 41 of Irvine, KY) into custody. There were no injuries in this incident and the money taken from the bank was recovered. The case remains under investigation by Detective Michael Stotts.
