Wilrye said that at 10:37 a.m., two people entered the bank, brandished firearms and demanded money.

One wore a red long-sleeve shirt, a camouflaged baseball cap, blue jeans and tennis shoes. He was wearing sunglasses and had a dark or navy bandana with a white floral print covering his face.

The other man was wearing a white long-sleeve shirt with a dark-colored undershirt, a baseball cap with white stitching of the Realtree emblem, dark pants and tennis shoes. He covered his face with a burnt lime green bandana.

Wilrye urged anyone with information to call Crimestoppers at 337-439-2222 or the Westlake Police Department 337-433-4151.

A gray 2009 Toyota Camry stolen during the robbery was recovered from the woods in Westlake, near the intersection of St. John Bosco Street and Harrison Street. The spot where the car was found is less than a mile away from the bank.

The two men entered the bank around 10:37 a.m., brandished firearms and demanded money.

They took an undisclosed amount of money, employees' wallets and stole an employee's Toyota Camry.
