St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s detectives are working with the FBI in a joint investigation after a Slidell-area bank was robbed Saturday morning (December 16).

Shortly before noon a white female walked into the Chase Bank branch at 1943 Gause Boulevard East, implied she had a weapon and handed a teller a note, demanding cash. She then fled the bank on foot with an undisclosed amount of stolen cash.

The suspect is described as a white female, with dark colored hair, wearing a black vest with a fur hood and a white and black scarf/poncho.

She is approximately 5 foot, 3 inches tall and 160 pounds.

She was last seen on foot headed towards Interstate 10.

Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call 911 or (985) 898-2338 or contact the FBI at 504-816-3000.
