A 27-year-old Williamstown man has been arrested for allegedly robbing three banks in less than two weeks.
Matthew Grant was arrested by the Cincinnati Police Department on May 9 after he is believed to have robbed Heritage Bank in Crescent Springs, Ky., earlier in the day.
The Hamilton County (Ohio) Sheriff’s Office also has charged Grant with aggravated robbery of the Guardian Savings Bank on April 26.
In that robbery, an unknown male white entered the bank on Harrison Avenue in Green Township and passed a note to the teller stating he had a gun and demanding cash, according to police.
The suspect fled with an undetermined amount of money.
Ten days later, Cincinnati Police were dispatched to Warsaw Federal Savings and Loan bank May 6 after a report of a robbery.
The suspect again entered the bank and handed a note to the teller demanding money.
Officers arrived within minutes of the alarm, but the suspect had already fled the scene on foot northbound on McPherson Avenue with an undetermined amount of currency.
Later that day, police signed a robbery warrant for the arrest of Grant, whose last known address was on Reed Kinman Road in Williamstown.
After his alleged third bank robbery in less than two weeks, Grant was apprehended by law enforcement and placed in the Hamilton County Justice Center.
He is charged with three robberies, along with an additional charge for theft of an automobile.
Hamilton County Sheriff’s crime scene investigators and detectives, assigned to the Sheriff’s Criminal
Investigations Section, matched known fingerprints of Grant to fingerprints obtained from evidence recovered at the Guardian Savings Bank (GSB) robbery.
Grant confessed to robbing GSB while being interviewed by detectives, according to the sheriff’s department.
He remains in the Hamilton County Justice Center awaiting his May 19 court date.
