At about 10:30 a.m. yesterday morning, two men entered the Whitney Bank, brandished weapons, and demanded money. One of the men in question wore a red, long-sleeved shirt and a camo cap.  The suspect was also wearing dark pants and tennis shoes. The suspect had his face hidden by a dark or navy bandana with white floral print. Westlake Police Chief Chris Wilrye said the suspects in Thursday morning’s bank robbery are still at large, and should be considered armed and dangerous.

The second suspect was wearing a white long-sleeved shirt with a dark undershirt, and a baseball type cap with “Realtree” stitched on it. He was also wearing dark pants and tennis shoes. His face was covered with a burnt line-green bandana and sunglasses. Wilrye described both subjects as men weighing 150 to 175 pounds, standing between 5-foot-5 and 5-foot-8, and having a light complexion.

In order to facilitate their getaway, the pair also allegedly stole a car from a bank employee. A gray 2009 Toyota Camry stolen during the robbery was recovered from the woods in Westlake, near the intersection of St. John Bosco Street and Harrison Street. The spot where the car was found is less than a mile away from the bank.

Wilrye urged anyone with information to call Crimestoppers at 337-439-222, or the Westlake Police Department 337-433-4151.
