Frankfort police Thursday arrested a federal fugitive living in Franklin County.
Joseph M. Wainscott, 18, of Farmers Lane, was arrested on bank robbery charges, which Frankfort Police Capt. Robert Warfel said is a federal crime.
Through talking with an informant during a drug investigation, police were able to gather information about Wainscott and his location.
The Frankfort Police Department contacted the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and U.S. Marshals service to confirm there was a federal warrant for Wainscott in Covington for bank robbery charges.
Warfel said police were able to locate Wainscott and take him into custody without incident. He’s being held in Franklin County Regional Jail without bond.
Warfel said Wainscott was found in an apartment across from Juniper Hill Park.
