PIKEVILLE - Police in Eastern Kentucky turned up a familiar face when they arrested a man in connection with a recent bank robbery.
Carl Edward Lockhart was arrested by Pikeville police on Thursday and charged with robbing U.S. Bank's branch in Virgie.
It turns out Lockhart was convicted of robbing another local bank more than 20 years ago.
In September of 1987 an armed man wearing a ski mask entered a bank in Ferrell's Creek and left with more than $300,000. Lockhart was later convicted in the robbery and sentenced to 45 years in federal prison.
Prison records show he was released in July on parole.
In the recent robbery, he and 64-year-old James Chaney were captured after the vehicle they were in was identified as the getaway car.
