Authorities, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation, are searching for a suspect connected with a string of bank robberies across the state this past week.
The suspect is in connection with several bank robberies from Sept. 14 to Sept. 24 in Alexandria, Broussard, Lafayette and Opelousas. The unidentified man produced a note indicating he had a weapon and demanded money from the tellers. Although the suspect did not produce a weapon in any of the incidents, he should be considered armed and dangerous.
The suspect is described as a white male, 50-60 years of age, approximately 6-foot-2 to 6-foot-4, weighing 240 – 260 pounds. He was observed driving a two- toned 2004-2008 Ford F-250 with tan paint and a black line at the bottom.
Persons having information that can help identify the individual are requested to contact Crime Stoppers at 337-232-TIPS, or the FBI’s New Orleans office at 504-816-3000.
