CHARLESTON, W.Va. - A long-haul truck driver faces charges in the Feb. 1 robbery of a West Side bank.
A multi-state investigation led to the arrest of William Douglas Young, 41, of Louisville, Ky.
The U.S. Marshal's Fugitive Task Force arrested Young Wednesday night at his Louisville home, said Chief Deputy Marshal Brian Parrish of the Western District of Kentucky.
Marshals swooped in on Young about 10 p.m., Parrish said. He was not armed and did not resist arrest.
Young is an interstate truck driver, detective Jarl Taylor told reporters at a press conference in Charleston Thursday.
Detectives were reviewing surveillance footage from the area around the BB&T branch on Patrick Street when they noticed the suspect had fled on foot toward a tractor-trailer parked near Big Lots.
The officers talked to representatives of TSI Trucking, which owned the truck seen in the footage.
"The detectives wanted to ask the driver of the truck if he had seen anything," Taylor said.
However, the investigation took a turn when one of the employees at the Indiana-based trucking company went online to look at a picture of the bank robbery suspect.
Police had released a video surveillance photo of the suspect the day of the robbery.
The close-up shot provided a clear image of the man's face.
"The employee immediately recognized him," Taylor said.
