Bank robber sentenced for PNC robbery; suspected in many more

COVINGTON, KY (FOX19) -

COVINGTON, KY — A Lexington man prosecutors say is a serial bank robber in Kentucky and Ohio will spend the next 34 years in prison.

U.S. District Court Judge David L. Bunning sentenced 54-year-old Lyle Isaacs to 18 years in prison for his robbery of the PNC Bank located on Dixie Highway in Edgewood, Ky., in July of 2009.  Judge Bunning also ordered that Isaacs serve this 18 year sentence on top of a current 16 year prison sentence he received recently for robbing a bank in Troy, Ohio.

Isaacs was also ordered to pay $7,380 in restitution to the PNC Bank.

A jury in Covington convicted Isaacs of the Edgewood bank robbery in June of this year.

According to the U.S. Attorney's Office evidence at the trial proved that Isaacs took more than $7,000 during the robbery. According to court records, Isaacs committed six other bank robberies between 1980 and 1989. Assistant U.S. Attorney Laura Voorhees proved during sentencing that Isaacs also committed seven other bank robberies, for which he was not charged with, since his release from prison in 2004.

 Voorhees introduced proof which showed that Isaacs robbed the following banks in the tri-state area.

1) Chase Bank, 9600 Linn Station Road, Louisville, Kentucky; September 25, 2008
2) Huntington Bank, 734 Ohio Pike, Cincinnati, Ohio; October 17, 2008
3) Chase Bank, 8632 Beechmont Avenue, Cincinnati, Ohio; December 5, 2008
4) Chase Bank, 9600 Linn Station Road, Louisville, Kentucky; February 13, 2009
5) Chase Bank, 806 West National Road, Vandalia, Ohio; May 13, 2009
6) Chase Bank, 1 Main Street, Monroe, Ohio; February 23, 2010
7) Huntington Bank, Anderson Township, Ohio; May 14, 2010.

Judge Bunning considered these seven robberies before issuing his sentence.

Kerry B. Harvey, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Kentucky, and Elizabeth A. Fries, Special Agent In Charge, Louisville Division, Federal Bureau of Investigation, jointly made the announcement today after sentencing.

The investigation of Isaacs was conducted by the Louisville, Ky. and Cincinnati, Ohio, divisions of the FBI, in cooperation with the police departments of Cincinnati, Troy, Monroe and Vandalia, Ohio, the Hamilton County (Ohio) Sheriff's Office, the Louisville, Ky. Metropolitan Police Department (P.D.), and the Edgewood, Ky. Police Department.
