A serial bank robber, accused of robbing several Louisville banks from April 2 to May 5, is now in police custody in Tennessee.
Salvador Abdul Jones, dubbed “Mr. Smooth” by LMPD Robbery Unit detectives, was taken into custody in Nashville on May 7.
On May 5, Detective Ben Dean said Jones robbed a U.S. Bank on Brownsboro Road. During the robbery, police were able to identify his vehicle, which was found in downtown Louisville.
Dean said Jones got his nickname because every victim they interviewed said he had a cool, calm demeanor, never appeared overbearing or threatening and the way he would leave never seemed in a hurry. Dean said Jones used demand notes to rob the banks.
Jones remains in custody in Nashville. He is facing four counts of robbery.
