Latest in Loot: Cross-Dressing Crime Comes to New Orleans East Bank
The last word in a month of cross-dressing crime may have come from the man who started it all. For the second time in a month, a man got all dressed up as a woman to go out and rob a bank. At about 10:40 a.m., the man entered the Capitol One Bank at 5695 Bullard Ave. in New Orleans East wearing a curly wig, blue blouse, black pants, sunglasses, makeup, sculpted finger nails and a ladies handbag on his left arm, according to the FBI.
Bank Robbers Ask Glen David Andrews to Leave
A decision to bring the dog to the bank apparently saved trombonist Glen David Andrews and his cousin, Rebirth Brass Band trumpeter Glen Andrews, from a holdup Monday morning. Around 9 a.m. Monday, the Andrews were standing outside the Capital One at S. Carrollton and Canal St. right before a group of people waiting for the bank to open were robbed by a pair of gun-toting men. Because Glen Andrews brought the potentially noisy pit bull with them, the robbers told the cousins to leave before they started the stickup. According to a Facebook post, Glen David Andrews immediately called 911. Click through to see the trombonist's full account of the events, and why he's speaking out.
Tequila Joins Tuna in Jail After Bringing Stolen Cash for Bail
After his arrest for robbing a Raceland bank on July 4 weekend, the Bad Hatter was split from his girlfriend, Tequila Guidry. But Guidry hatched a plan to spring her man, who's real name is Richard "Tuna" Kiser" from the joint. According to WWL Radio, she took the heist loot down to the jail, and tried to post bail. But, detectives were waiting outside, where they were nabbed her and the money. That awful Mardi Gras hat, on the other hand, is still on the lam.
Outlaw Paw Paw Sought Payday
From Pretty Boy Floyd to Baby Face Nelson ,the FBI has a long history of giving bank robbers nicknames that make them sound more like guys you chased skirts with, and less like people who carry guns. But for their latest heistmaster, things have gone a little further into friendly territory. Hearing the latest nickname, "Paw Paw Bandit," kind of makes you want to sit on the guy's lap. Nevertheless, the unidentified man is alleged to have pulled off multiple robberies in Jefferson Parish, and authorities don't know who his name.

Bad Hatter: 'Tuna' Bagged After Raceland Bank Heist
As any seasoned veteran of Mardi Gras can tell you, a weak costume only makes you standout. Richard "Tuna" Kiser learned the lesson first hand this week when he robbed a bank in Raceland disguised only in one of those cheesy, dime-a-dozen hats that say "Mardi Gras" in big letters. The 25-year-old got away from a Chase branch Thursday with all of its 50 and 100-dollar bills, but was apprehended in less than 24 hours because of surveillance video that clearly showed his face. Someone should've consulted Cree McCree.
FBI Gives Good Meeting
Earlier this month, yet another dash of the world's finest irony passed across our discriminating palette as a bank robber who lead police on a high-speed chase ended up being bagged in front of the FBI building on Leon C. Simon Dr. But, for a change this wasn't mere coincidence. Patrick McCarthy lead police right to the doorstep of law enforcement not because he hoped to escape their jurisdiction, or engage in mind games. He lead them there because he wanted a meeting, ABC-26 reports.
Man's Crime Spree Ends in Front of FBI Building
Around 1:00 p.m. today, Patrick McCarthy produced a knife, and robbed the Chase Bank at 4600 Chef Menteur Highway, according to New Orleans police. The 37-year-old then robbed the Capitol One Bank at 6700 Elysian Fields Ave. in the same fashion. To make it a crime of three, he drove across from the bank to a Shell station, and relieved them of a pack of cigarettes. The jag was up when police caught on. Police and, later, FBI agents, gave chase to McCarthy's green Ford Escort. He lead them to familiar grounds. McCarthy was arrested in front of the FBI building on Leon C. Simon. Federal charges are pending.
