Police arrested a man they say walked into a Whitney Bank branch on Bluebonnet Boulevard on Saturday and robbed the business using a handgun.
Louis Bennett III, 47, of 1863 Kansas St. in Baton Rouge, was taken into custody by deputies Monday night after they found him in a vehicle on East Buchanan Street, said East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s office spokeswoman Casey Rayborn Hicks.
The robbery occurred around 9:40 a.m. Saturday at the bank’s location of 8778 Bluebonnet Blvd., she said. Hicks said she could not disclose the amount of money Bennett stole. Bennett faces a count of armed robbery, she said. The event is still under investigation.
