Kelly says 25-year-old Carl Davis of McConnellsville is jailed an an Attempted Robbery charge.
Kelly says tellers entering the Community Bank in Amesville at about
8 a. m. were confronted by a man hiding inside a closet. They slammed the door in his face and fled. He followed them out and fled into the woods east of the bank on State Route 550.
The sheriff says Amesville firefighters setting up for a near-by festival blocked off the area and pointed deputies in the direction the suspect fled
Kelly says Deputy John Morris and K-9 Esko then tracked the suspect down in the woods.
Kelly says the man gained entry to the bank by breaking through a back window in an empty upstairs apartment and then breaking through the ceiling of the bank.
The sheriff says it appears the man had unsuccessfully tried to get into the vault – and when he couldn’t, he waited for the tellers to arrive.
Kelly says an arrest warrant has been issued for a second suspect.
