Bank robberies are occurring more and more often in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Why? Law enforcement says that the impetus behind this particular rise in crime is very likely related to the increase in drug abuse and addiction in the area. Those who are arrested for robbing banks report that they are committing the robberies in order to get the funds they need to buy drugs.
Unfortunately, in an eight-month period, there were eight bank robberies reported in Bowling Green and only half of those cases resulted in arrest.
It may seem impossible to fathom that your addicted loved one in Bowling Green could or would commit such a desperate crime, but the fact is that addiction makes people do desperate things. Thievery, drugged driving, violence, abuse – the chances that your family member will commit any or all of these acts increases exponentially when he or she is living with an untreated drug dependence.

- Paraphernalia and signs of chronic drug abuse
- Financial stress or distress
- Aggression or irritability
