Woman robs Corbin bank

Suspect remains at large after PNC robbery

CORBIN — By Jeff Noble / Staff Writer

Corbin Police continue to search and investigate, after the PNC Bank on the Cumberland Gap Parkway (U.S. 25E) was robbed around 4 p.m. Friday.

They’re searching for a woman who came in and robbed the bank of an undetermined amount of cash. According to Corbin Police Chief David Campbell, who was at the scene, the suspect was driving a white car.

Before 5:30 p.m. Friday, an officer said, “It’s not confirmed, but we’ve got a suspect.” Ten minutes later, two police cruisers quickly left the bank and sped off back into the city.

The robbery occurred during the peak time for people getting off from work, as well as the start of the long Labor Day holiday weekend.

Shortly after the robbery, the bank was closed to customers, both inside and out.

The doors were locked, and a sign on the side door alerted customers “This office temporarily closed due to an emergency.”

Around the same time, a police detective came inside to question bank employees about what they saw during the robbery, as well as to get a description of the suspect. The only time the side door came open was when police came in and out of the bank, as well as letting bank employees in for questioning, or for them to go out and go home.

With the exception of the ATM lane, all drive-through lanes were closed after the robbery.
