WILLIAMSBURG, Ky. (AP, abc24.com) - A husband and wife are held in a southern Kentucky jail in the "bad hair bandit" bank robberies.
Jason and Tasha Fox were held early Monday on robbery charges at the Whitley County Jail, where records don't include information about any attorneys for the couple.
Police said Jason Fox has confessed to seven bank robberies in Kentucky and Tennessee, according to WKYT-TV in Lexington.
Tasha Fox told the station she threw a bag containing a BB pistol off a bridge into a river, but didn't say where.
The couple married in June at about the time of the first robbery. Their arrests came Friday.
The "bad hair bandit" nickname came from the fact that the bank robber wore a number of ill-fitting wigs as disguises.
