FBI, police seek serial bank robbers

Thursday, November 18, 2010 - 12:14pm

FBI agents in Texas and Louisiana have joined together with Shreveport Police Detectives to find two suspected serial bank robbers.

Two black males are believed to be connected to four bank robberies in Mansfield and Joaquin, Texas and Grand Cane and Shreveport, Louisiana.  "There are things that have led us to believe that these robberies are connected," said Sgt. Bill Goodin, Shreveport Police Department spokesman.

One of those things is that the robbers fled the scene on three out of the four occasions in employees' vehicles, which is uncommon to most robberies like these.  "That's not something we normally see," explained Sgt. Goodin.  The offender "goes in and wants to get in and out as quietly and quickly as possible."

Witnesses at each robbery have given similar descriptions to detectives.  They have said that at two of the robberies one man wears a florescent vest and a hard hat.  One suspect has also fired shots at two robberies.

"One of the males is about six feet tall.  The other is a little shorter," Sgt. Goodin described.  Both suspects are described as black males.  Authorities say they are not ruling anything out as far as locations because they are following numerous leads.

If you have any information about these two suspects, you are asked to call Shreveport Police Detectives at 318-673-6955 or Shreveport-Caddo Parish Crime Stoppers at 318-673-7373.
