EUNICE, La. (KLFY) – Police are currently searching for a man who allegedly robbed a bank at gunpoint earlier this morning.

The incident happened shortly before 9 a.m. at the Basile State Bank.

Chief Randy Fontenot said a black male suspect walked in, produced a handgun and demanded money from the teller.

The suspect then ran out of the bank with an undisclosed amount of money.

Investigators have dubbed him the “Polite Robber” because he “at least thanked the tellers before fleeing the bank,” Fontenot said.

Anyone with any information about the crime is asked to call the Eunice Police Department at (337) 457-2626.
