Broussard Police say the man accused of robbing a bank and shooting a teller has been arrested.

Jeremie Raymond, 29, of New Iberia, was arrested on a fugitive warrant for attempted first-degree murder, armed robbery (bank) and illegal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Broussard Police identified Raymond as the suspect who fled on foot after committing the crimes at Community First Bank on Monday.  With the assistance of the U.S. Marshal’s Middle Louisiana Fugitive Task Force and Western District of Louisiana’s Violent Offender Task Force, Raymond was apprehended early this morning at his sister’s residence in Baton Rouge.  The investigation was a collaborative effort between several neighboring jurisdictions who have been working collectively to track down Raymond, a spokesman said. 

A judge put a $500,000 bond on the warrant Broussard Police obtained for Raymond. He is currently being held in East Baton Rouge Parish Jail. Broussard detectives are on the way to interview him now, a spokesman said. 

One man already is in jail for the robbery.  John Allen Charles, 27, of New Iberia  was booked with attempted first-degree murder and armed robbery. Broussard Police Chief Brannon Decou says that Charles was identified as the driver of the getaway vehicle that picked up the shooter. The vehicle was stopped in the vicinity of the robbery.
