Fort Thomas Police Respond To Robbery In Progress At Chase Bank


On Monday morning, Fort Thomas Police officers responded to a robbery in progress at the Chase Bank at 11 S. Grand Avenue in Fort Thomas.

Officers from Bellevue, Dayton, Southgate, Highland Heights, Cold Spring, Newport and the Campbell County Sheriff's office were also dispatched to the scene at around 11:45 a.m.

A bank employee had pushed the silent alarm to alert police. According to police, the bank teller knew the subject and believed that he was trying either forge or defraud his way into an account that was not his.

When law enforcement arrived on scene, the subject was still on location and police detained him for questioning.

"We had reason to believe that there was a potential bank robbery situation," said Lt. Rich Whitford of the Fort Thomas Police.

"We reviewed the security footage, interviewed the bank manager, employee and spoke with the subject and determined that it may have been a possible fraud case, but likely that was it."


Whitford said the case is still under investigation, but no charges were pressed on scene.

Monday morning was a busy one for Fort Thomas Police. Just a few hours earlier, a work van side swiped a car on a busy Fort Thomas street, before careening into a front yard, just feet from a home on Highland Avenue. Police charged, Eric Hancock with DUI and wanton endangerment.

Hancock had additional charges placed on him, promoting contraband and possession of a controlled substance, when Campbell County Detention Center employees found what they believed to be Xanax on his body as he was being processed into the jail.
