Six people are charged in connection with the 2013 murder of an armored truck guard, and one of those suspects is wanted by the FBI.

Lilbear George, Jeremy Esteves, Curtis Johnson, Jr., Chukwudi Ofomata, and Robert Brumfield, III, have all been indicted on using firearms in relation to crimes of violence, subtantive robbery to obstruct interstate commerce, and conspiracy to obstruct interstate commerce by robbery.  George and Jasmine Theophile are also charged with obstruction of a grand jury proceeding for allegedly destroying cell phone evidence.

Brumfield, who goes by the nickname "L'il Rob" remains at large.  If you know where he is, call the FBI New Orleans Field Office at 504-816-3000.
