The reward, according to Dave Simpson, a security officer at the Allen branch bank, will be given to anyone who can provide information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons involved in the robbery.
According to the Kentucky State Police, who are leading the investigation, $2,500 of the reward will be paid after an arrest and the remaining $2,500 will be given after the suspect or suspects are convicted.
Investigators worked in cooperation with bank officials to release video surveillance still-shots this week showing the suspect who actually entered the bank.
The still-shots are of the suspect entering the bank wearing what appear to be bandanas wrapped around his head and face and then a second shot at the counter where he demanded money.
On Aug. 10, a male suspect who appeared to be in his early 20s, according to bank clerks, came into the bank with a knife and demanded money. Witnesses said the entire robbery lasted about a minute. The amount of money taken has not been disclosed.
Anyone wishing to provide confidential information about the robbery can call the FBI Pikeville office at (606) 432-1226 or the Kentucky State Police at (606) 433-7711.
