Sheriff Newell Normand reports that on Saturday, June 24, 2017, at 11:21 am, our deputies were dispatched to the Resource Bank at 321 Veterans Boulevard in Metairie in reference to a holdup alarm. While deputies were responding to the location, multiple 911 calls were received indicating that the bank had just been robbed.
Upon their arrival, deputies were notified that the bank had in fact been robbed at gunpoint. The suspect was able to flee the bank with an undisclosed amount of money, and efforts to locate him in the area were unsuccessful. The suspect was described as a black male, approximately 5’ 10" tall, with a slim build.
Anyone with information regarding this robbery is asked to call Robbery Detective Marc Macaluso at 504-364-5300 or contact Crimestoppers.
