A warrant was issued for Young's arrest based on the employee's statement and other aspects of the investigation, Taylor said.
Taylor wasn't sure if police had recovered any of the money taken from the bank. He also did not know how long Young had worked for the trucking company.
The detective said the suspected robber's profession jibes with the crime he is believed to have committed.
"(Interstate truck drivers) have access to just about any part of the country," Taylor said.
Representatives with TSI Trucking did not return calls seeking comment.
Police said the suspect entered the bank two weeks ago and gave a teller a note saying he had a weapon and demanding cash. Police are still unsure if the man actually had a weapon.
No injuries were reported.
Officers searched the banks of the nearby Kanawha River after the robbery in hopes of finding the suspect there.
He is being held in the Jefferson County (Ky.) jail as he awaits an extradition hearing. He will face charges of bank robbery in Kanawha County.
Extraditions typically take about 10 days, Taylor said, "but it could take a little longer if he fights it."
