MONTGOMERY, OH (FOX19) -- Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters and Montgomery Police Chief Don Simpson are asking the public's help in keeping a convicted bank robber behind bars.
Greg Cooper, formerly of Loveland, and his co-defendant Wayne Cornett, were convicted of robbing the Society National Bank in Montgomery in December of 1989. Cooper showed a revolver as he ordered three tellers not to sound the alarm or they would be killed.
As they fled, Cooper was approached by a Montgomery police officer. Cooper fired shots at the officer, striking him in the chest and hand. The officer was wearing a bullet proof vest and not critically injured.
