Serial Bank Robber Captured In Kentucky

CHICAGO (CBS) — A man wanted for seven bank robberies in the Midwest has been arrested in Kentucky.

The first robbery happened six weeks ago in South Bend, Ind.

The suspect then hit a bank in south suburban Lansing before robbing five other banks in Ohio, Wisconsin and Kentucky.

Beaver Bernard Russell, 47, was caught by police last week after a car chase in which the vehicle he was driving flipped over. Russell was attempted to flee police after two more robberies in Kentucky.

Russell is now charged with the robberies and admitted to five purse snatchings in Northwest Indiana, police said.

    He should have just came here to Chicago, he could rob as many banks in a day he wants, never even have to use a gun and never get caught.

    It’s funny how all you northern city slickers like to bad mouth, a redneck from the south but you see who catches the robbers. Chicago’s police department is so incompetent the mayor has to call in the Feds lmao. If yall would just take a look around outside of your state, you don’t see any other states having to put Feds on the ground to police everyday citizens. What’s that? What do we do differently? We all carry guns down here and we don’t need Feds in our neighborhoods.

      You have a point. however, because he’s black, the cops probably don’t go after him as much.
