Lafayette bank robbery suspect arrested in Texas


LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - A suspect wanted for a Lafayette, La., bank robbery has been arrested in Texas.

Authorities say 20-year-old Tre Lamar Bookard was arrested Monday during a traffic stop near El Paso.

Bookard was wanted on a charge of simple robbery.

Police say Bookard allegedly entered a bank on Nov. 8 and gave the teller a note demanding cash. The teller turned over an undisclosed amount of cash and the suspect fled the scene by unknown means.

The robbery remains under investigation.

It was unclear whether Bookard has an attorney.
