Scott Police Chief Chad Leger says his department is seeking a man who walked into the Home Bank branch on Cameron Street this morning with a gun and a small bag, demanding cashiers fill it up with money.
According to Leger, at 10:38 a.m. his department received a call that the alarm had been activated at 5543 Cameron Street in Scott. The department sent out a notice to lock down three schools in the area during the initial investigation, but Leger said the lockdown has been rescinded.
Leger said video shows a white male, approximately 5'2" to 5'5" in height, wearing a tan ball cap with a camouflage bill. Leger said the man was wearing white tennis shoes, khaki pants and a white t-shirt with the word "Relay" in red letters on the front. He also had a large tattoo on his left forearm.
According to Leger, the suspect was carrying a hand gun and a small bag, which he directed tellers to fill with cash. He then exited through a side door of the bank.
Leger said his officers were in the process of checking video cameras from other locations near the bank. He said that they believe the suspect was working alone.
Leger said anyone with information regarding this incident should call (337)233-3715.
