UPDATE: Harston Charged in Second Bank Robbery

By Lauren Forsythe | 

An already accused bank robber was charged with another count yesterday in connection to a Bowling Green bank robbery.

47-year-old Steven Harston was arrested and charged last month for the June 2012 American Bank and Trust robbery.

Now, a second count of robbery has been added for the First Security Bank robbery in January.

Harston is being held in the Warren County Regional Jail on a $250,000 cash bond.

"You can expect additional charges forthcoming. Right now, we are verifying his criminal history. I think at the very least you will see him charged with being a persistent felony offender to be used as a sentence enhancement, and other charges may be forthcoming," says Warren County Commonwealth Attorney, Chris Cohron.

If convicted of these charges, Cohron says Harston is looking at life in prison.
