SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) — The Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Office has released images and surveillance video of the man who robbed WESLA Federal Credit Union on Monday morning.

The armed robbery happened at 10:48 a.m. in the 2900 block of Williamson Way.

According to CPSO, the man entered the bank with a handgun and got away with an undisclosed amount of money. While the suspect was fleeing the bank, he tripped several times in the parking lot and dropped his mask along with some of the stolen cash.
