A suspect in the November 18 armed robbery of the Wesla Credit Union on Williamson Way is now in custody, according to Caddo Sheriff Steve Prator.
The suspect, identified as Troy Donnell Baker, 38, was located with information from Crime Stoppers, the U.S. Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force, and Bossier City Police. Baker was found at a house on Fullilove Street.
Baker surrendered without incident.
An investigation into the armed robbery, conducted by Caddo Sheriff’s Det. Vincent Jackson led authorities to Baker. Baker was dropped off at the credit union before the robbery, then fled on foot with an undetermined about of cash taken from the teller.
As Baker fled the scene, he fell numerous times in the parking lot. As a result, Baker dropped some of the money and other evidence along the way.
Bond has been set for Baker at $500,000.
If you have information that could lead to the arrest of suspects, as well as the recovery of stolen property and drugs, you could be eligible for a cash award of up to $1,000, paid on an anonymous basis. You can phone in your tip: (318) 673-7373 or submit a tip online at news.tipsubmit.com.
