Suspect in Highlands US Bank robbery brought back to Louisville

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A man who fled to Tennessee after police say he robbed a bank in the Highlands neighborhood is back in Louisville.

Police say on July 12, just after 9 a.m., 35-year-old Brannon Shelburne went the US Bank at 2350 Bardstown Road, near Wrocklage Avenue. He gave a bank employee a note saying he had a gun and demanded money.

Police say was able to leave the bank with an undetermined amount of cash. No one was injured.

In a Facebook post, Louisville Metro Police said someone identified the suspect 10 minutes after surveillance photos from the robbery were released. He was arrested the following day, on July 13, in Nashville. 

Shelburne was brought back to Louisville and booked into Louisville Metro Corrections Monday afternoon on a first-degree robbery charge.

Police say he was already on federal probation for a previous bank robbery, when he robbed the US Bank.
