Update: Second Suspect Arrested In Melville Bank Robbery
In an update to this story, a second suspect in the February 8th armed robbery of the United Mississippi Bank in Melville is now behind bars.
The first suspect, Tyrone D. Byers of Natchitoches, was arrested earlier this week in Texas following a high speed chase. St. Landry Parish Sheriff Bobby Guidroz says the second suspect, David Pooler, was arrested by East Baton Rouge Parish sheriff’s deputies while he was being booked on an outstanding warrant from a previous crime in that parish. He was recognized by the booking officer as a person of interest in the Melville robbery.
One suspect remains at large.
