(Boone County, Ky.) – A northern Kentucky bank robbery suspect has been taken into custody.
Marvin D. Ratliff, 61, of Cincinnati, was arrested Wednesday evening at the Super 8 Motel on Dream Street in Florence.
According to the Boone County Sheriff’s Office, Ratliff committed a bank robbery at L&N Federal Credit Union on October 5.
