Man arrested for alleged bank robbery on Corporate Boulevard
BATON ROUGE - Officers arrested a man for an alleged bank robbery that happened Monday on Corporate Boulevard.
The Baton Rouge Police Department said it arrested Floyd Hose Jr., 37, after he allegedly walked into Cottonport Bank on Corporate Boulevard and passed a note to the teller demanding money and advising them not to say anything.
The teller then handed Hose a bait pack of cash, which Hose turned down and demanded real money. According to arrest documents, Hose then turned his hips toward the teller and insinuated he had a weapon, threatening to harm them if they refused to comply.
The teller then gave Hose $9,605 from the register and Hose fled the bank. Officers were able to locate him at his apartment complex overnight and arrest him.
Hose was booked on first-degree robbery.
