SHEPHERDSVILLE - An online banking scam has allegedly resulted in half a million dollars taken from Bullitt County.

Judge/Executive Melanie Roberts said that through an online banking transaction someone from the Ukraine took $500,000 out of a county account through First Federal Savings Bank.

Roberts met Tuesday with the county attorney, county sheriff, county treasurer and First Federal officials to discuss the issue.

Bullitt Fiscal Court has scheduled a special meeting at 5 p.m. Wednesday for further discussion.

The county's account has been frozen so that no further money could be withdrawn.
