The FBI is searching for a man, dressed as a woman, who robbed a Metairie bank.
Special Agent Sheila Thorne, spokeswoman for the FBI, says the robbery took place yesterday at a branch of First Bank and Trust.
Thorne says the man approached a teller and, without producing a weapon, demanded money. He received cash and fled. Thorne says police do not know if the man escaped in car or on foot. No injuries were reported.
Thorne says the robber was wearing a black wig, sunglasses and boots, a dark jacket and pants and carried a black purse.
