A second warrant has been issued in connection with a May robbery at a Moss Bluff credit union.

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's deputies were called to the CSEFCU on Sam Houston Jones Parkway on May 22. When they arrived, they learned that a suspect had entered the credit union and demanded money from a teller. After he was given an undisclosed amount of cash, he ran away on foot into a wooded area behind the credit union, a spokeswoman said. 

During the investigation, detectives viewed video surveillance footage in the area of the credit union and were able to identify a car of interest that drove by the credit union several times before the robbery and left the area immediately following the robbery.  Detectives received several leads and were able to identify the suspect as Ray J. McAllister, 37, Del Valle, Texas. 

A warrant was issued for McAllister in August, and he was located in jail in Waco, Texas on unrelated charges.

Detectives now have identified the alleged driver of the car as Christopher R. Guidry, 31, of Elton.  Detectives also learned Guidry allegedly had prior knowledge of the robbery and assisted in conducting wire transfers with a portion of the stolen money from the credit union. 

A warrant has been issued for Guidry on a charge of principal to simple robbery. Guidry is in the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center; he was arrested in August on drug charges in Lafayette. He now has holds on him from Calcasieu Parish, sheriff's records show. 

The FBI assisted in the investigation.

CPSO Detective Roland Jones is the lead investigator on this case.
