LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police have a suspect in custody after an attempted robbery at a BB&T bank in the city's east end.
According to Jeffersontown Police, the BB&T Blankenbaker branch near Bluegrass Parkway was robbed just before 11:30 a.m. today. Police say the suspect left the bank in a silver Chevrolet Malibu that was subsequently spotted by officers driving west on Interstate 64.
Jeffersontown Police Chief Rick Sanders says, "I don't think it was an extremely high rate of speed. He was obviously fleeing, but I don't think he was driving in such a manner that caused us a concern for safety on 64 or 65."
Several other patrol cars joined the chase, and the suspect stopped the vehicle near St. Catherine before taking off on foot.
Police say he got out of the car, dropped the money, but still had a gun in his hand. They say somewhere during the foot chase along St. Catherine Street, Queen dropped the gun. Police are still looking for it. Chief Sanders says, "Some officers saw a gun in his hand as he was fleeing on foot. And again, the officers showed great restraint in not having to fire a shot."
The suspect was taken into custody shortly before noon, but was not immediately placed in a cruiser. Police could be seen offering the suspect water before EMS arrived.
A small pile of money could be seen in the grass near where the suspect was captured, as well as a plastic bag that appeared to be filled with money.
Chief Sanders identifies the suspect as 30-year-old Brian Queen of Louisville.
Queen is to be charged with 1st degree robbery, several counts of 1st degree wanton endangerment (the bank personnel and police officers involved), and fleeing and evading police.
Chief Sanders says Queen has a criminal record that goes back to 2001. It includes a concealed weapons charge, disorderly conduct, and several drug possession and theft charges.
