FLORENCE, Ky. -- A man accused of robbing a Florence, Ky. bank last week was arrested Thursday.

Authorities said Jason Abell, 34, walked into the U.S. Bank inside Meijer Monday, handed the teller a note and demanded money.

He did not wear a disguise or take out a weapon, and surveillance cameras saw his face, police said.

Detectives said Abell was also involved with a similar robbery at a U.S. Bank inside Meijer in Jeffersonville, Ind. on Sept. 6.

Shelbyville, Ky. police arrested Abell. He is currently in the Shelby County Jail.
