Bowling Green seeing bank robbery trend

Posted: Updated:

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - There's an upward trend in bank robberies in the southern Kentucky city of Bowling Green.

The Daily News reports there have been eight bank robberies in the past eight months in Bowling Green, and police have made arrests in just half of those.

The city is on track to break the 5-year record number of robberies set last year when five banks were robbed. A little more than five weeks into 2013, three banks had already been robbed.

In 2008, three robberies were recorded. There was one recorded in 2009, two in 2010 and three in 2011.

Bowling Green police spokesman Officer Ronnie Ward says authorities have increased their patrols of local banks.
