Press Release – Bank Robbery
OPSO is currently investigating the robbery of the Ouachita Valley Federal Credit Union located at 1605 Highway 80 East in Monroe. Shortly after 9:45 am, a black male suspect wearing a dark two-toned hoodie, dark pants, dark shoes, and a cloth covering his face entered the bank and demanded money from the tellers. The suspect acted as if he had a weapon in a bag that he brought into the bank. After taking an undisclosed amount of cash, the suspect exited the front doors and fled east through the parking lot.
OPSO, along with the Federal Bureau of Investigations, is seeking leads on the identity of this suspect. Anyone with information is encouraged to call OPSO at 318-329-1200 or Crimestoppers at 318-388-2274.
