The LMPD SWAT team and K9 units were involved in the search for the suspect after the robbery because it was thought he was still in the surrounding area.

On Aug. 6, Brannon Lee Shelburne, 35, of Louisville, was arrested for the crime. Shelburne was already being held at Louisville Metro Corrections on another robbery charge and federal detainer.
