Picayune PD asking for public’s assistance in identifying bank robbery suspect

Investigators with the Picayune Police Department are asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspect involved in a bank robbery that occurred Monday afternoon in the north end of the city.

According to a departmental release, the robbery occurred at the First National Bank branch located at 721 Cooper Road on Monday at 3:32 pm.

Officers arrived on scene after being dispatched to a call that a hold up just occurred at the bank. Witnesses stated that an unidentified black female entered the bank and walked up to one of the tellers and presented a note that stated she was demanding money. After receiving an undisclosed amount of money from the teller, the suspect left the bank and drove away in a black Jeep Liberty. It appears as though the vehicle was spray painted using a flat black paint, but may have been red at some point since red paint was visible at the back of the vehicle where the spare tire mounts.

The suspect left the area in an unknown direction.

The suspect was wearing a pink top, multicolored leggings and appeared to be wearing a wig, the release states.

Anyone with information that can lead to an arrest in this case is asked to contact Capt. Rhonda Poche at 601-798-7411 or 601-337-6544, Det. Aaron Grob at 601-273-1863 or by calling Mississippi Coast Crime Stoppers at 877-787-5898.
