Opelousas Man Arrested in Bank Heist


Baton Rouge police have arrested a 29-year-old Opelousas man accused of robbing a bank. 

Karl Shelvin allegedly walked into the State Bank and Trust on Florida St. at 2:22 p.m. Tuesday with a note demanding money.

Shelvin was booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on one count of simple robbery.

It was unclear whether Shelvin has an attorney.
