On Thursday, July 27, 2017 just before 1230pm a lone B/M walked into the lobby of Regions Bank located at 508 N Airline highway in Gonzales. The B/M the approached a lone teller working the teller line and presented her with a note demanding all of the cash from her drawer. The cashier gave the robber a non-disclosed amount of cash and the b/m then exited the bank on foot. Officers in close proximity responding to the robbery call witnessed no one fitting the description given walking in the area of the bank.

Information gained from witnesses lead investigators to believe that the suspect may have left the parking lot in a possible white 4-door Acura with dark tinted windows and chrome rims.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers or the Gonzales Police Dept detectives at 225-647-9583.
