Bank robbery suspect arrested after 3 week manhunt

LUDLOW, KY (FOX19) -

A 26-year-old man has been arrested following a Ludlow, Ky. bank robbery after a three-week manhunt.

The robbery happened at approximately 2:17 p.m. on April 10. Officers responded to the Huntington Bank located in the 300 block of Elm Street.

Officers say that Matthew Wolfinbarger, 26, entered the bank and demanded cash. Ludlow Police said no weapon was displayed and Wolfinbarger ran off on foot with cash.

After viewing surveillance footage, police say they were able to positively identify Wolfinbarger. Wolfinbarger is approximately 6-feet tall and 185 pounds. He has brown hair and blue eyes.  Police say Wolfinbarger has tattoos on his back, arm and behind the ear.

Wolfinbarger was arrested on Sunday night. Officers say he was the passenger in a vehicle that was stopped for an unrelated charge.

Officers say that Wolfinbarger altered his appearance by having two tattoos added to his face as well as a third on his neck. Police say he also started using an alias.

Wolfinbarger is awaiting trial and is currently lodged in the Hamilton County Jail. He will also be facing an extradition hearing in the near future in order to return to Kentucky.
