At a press conference Thursday afternoon, Bardstown Police Chief Rick McCubbin credited good police work in responding to the robbery, as well as some proactive measures police had put in place.
"We started reaching out to the banks, actually, early this week," McCubbin said.
McCubbin drafted a letter to the banks and distributed it through his beat officers asking the tellers to not rely on the alarm companies to report a robbery. His letter asked them to first lock the doors and secure the building, then contact Nelson County Central Dispatch directly so as not to waste precious minutes.
McCubbin said the Wilson & Muir employees did exactly as requested, which gave police a faster jump on finding a suspect.
He also said police had changed up their tactics, planning ahead to have just enough officers to secure the scene at the location.
"The order was standing for all other officers to spread Bardstown," McCubbin said. "We had a large, several-mile radius of that bank covered within minutes."
McCubbin said Bardstown Police Officer Dave Culler was in Walmart within minutes after the robbery scouring surveillance footage until he caught a glimpse of the suspect truck - the red Ford Ranger that had white buckets sticking out of the bed. McCubbin said footage showed the truck stayed in the parking lot less than three minutes.
Culler was able to get the description to Bardstown officers, Nelson County sheriff's deputies and Kentucky State Police troopers quickly, which allowed them to expand the search, McCubbin said.

"I can't say enough about the officers and deputies and what they did today," McCubbin said.
McCubbin said Smith confessed to all three robberies.
...
"When we did finally corner our suspect, we basically had more than enough to put all three on him," McCubbin said. "Our evidence was overwhelming.
McCubbin said while confessing, Smith said he was motivated by the need to get money for a drug habit. Police said they did not recover a weapon and don't believe he had one, but intimated he did to bank employees.
"If you indicate, threaten or use force, it's still robbery, whether you use your finger in a cloth or a gun, it's still robbery first degree," McCubbin said.
McCubbin and other officers at the press conference were visibly relieved to solve what he said had been a frustrating case.
...
McCubbin said police strongly suspect someone else robbed the former First Federal Savings Bank on North Third in December. McCubbin said police are confident they know who did that robbery, but don't have the evidence to charge him.
"We're obviously happy to report (the arrest) to our community, because it has rattled some people, and those of you from this area know it has. It has us," McCubbin said. "I know our detectives have been frustrated because this falls in their lap."
But detectives had put a lot of work into the investigation, McCubbin said, and the strong evidence against Smith was the result.

Bardstown Police Chief Rick McCubbin said Friday he is confident the robbery of the Your Community Bank at 106 W. John Rowan Blvd. Thursday and a March 13 hold-up on North Third Street are related.
McCubbin said police have yet to identify a suspect in those two robberies, but he is hoping the brazen nature of Thursday's heist will aid investigators.
