Man Indicted In Bank Robbery By Federal Grand Jury
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — A federal grand jury has indicted a suspected serial bank robber in an August bank heist -- about a month after he was released from prison following two bank robberies in 2003.
The Advocate reports 44-year-old Scott E. Coats, of Baton Rouge, was charged Wednesday with bank robbery after he allegedly held up the First NBC Bank in Denham Springs on Aug. 16.
Coats is accused of taking about $1,500 from First NBC.
Denham Springs police captured Coats shortly after the robbery.
It was unclear whether Coats has an attorney.
The case has been assigned to U.S. District Judge James J. Brady.
