Michael Blackburn with the U.S Marshals Service in Ashland tells WSAZ.com that Abercrombie was wanted on a supervised release violation.
In January 2002, Abercrombie was sentenced to 12-and-a-half years in a federal prison after pleading guilty to robbing the Firstar Bank in Meta, Ky. in June 2001.
Abercrombie was arrested in Mingo County about an hour after the robbery as he was returning the rental car he used during the bank robbery.
Part of his sentence included three years supervised release once he was released from federal prison.
