At approximately 10:17 a.m. today, two individuals armed with handguns approached a teller window and demanded money. The robbers were described as black males, approximately 6’ – 6’3”, and 170-190 pounds. One wore a camouflage jacket and a white t-shirt covering his face. The other robber wore a white t-shirt and a black hooded sweatshirt. The robbers fled with an undisclosed amount of money in a white Jeep Cherokee which was abandoned and recovered a few blocks from the bank near Broadway Avenue and Green Street. 

The Metropolitan Orleans Bank Security Association (MOBSA) offers up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and indictment of these robbers. Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI at 504-816-3000.
