Man arrested in connection with Fifth Third Bank robbery
The man accused of robbing the Fifth Third Bank in Kanawha City last week was in court yesterday to hear the depth of the charges against him. It's not just the Fifth Third Banks robbery, but a host of other crimes that Dempsey is accused of, including an assault on three men, including a South Charleston police officer. That happened the day after the alleged robbery. The day before the robbery police allegedly found marijuana plants inside Dempsey's home. He's being held in South Central Regional Jail on a $150,000 cash-only bond. He has two preliminary hearings set. The first will be on Monday for charges that don't include robbery, then June 21 for the robbery charges.
