New Orleans, LA (KPEL News) - We don't often hear about bank robberies these days. Most of us think about gun slingers on horseback when we hear the phrase "bank robbers." Technology has prevented many such crimes in Louisiana and around the country, so when we hear about one, it jumps out. Such was the case recently in Baton Rouge.

The FBI put out a wanted notice for a 22-year-old fast food worker with a butterfly tattoo on her neck who allegedly walked into a Chase Bank on Highland Road in Baton Rouge in October of 2023. Jazmine Johnnie handed the teller a note demanding $45,000 and claiming that she had a bomb in her purse. Johnnie also threatened that her boyfriend was armed with an AK-47. She left the bank with $3500 in cash and drove away in a gray Dodge Challenger.


A federal arrest warrant on bank robbery charges was issued in February, and a "wanted" release went out to Louisiana media on Friday, May 3. The FBI said Johnnie had known ties in Lafayette and Baton Rouge, as well as in Houston and Huntsville, Alabama.

On Monday, May 6, the agency sent a notice that Johnnie had surrendered herself to Baton Rouge authorities over the weekend.

Anyone with information about any of the fugitives wanted by the FBI is asked to contact them at 1-800-CALLFBI or submit a tip through their website at You'll notice that some of the rewards for information are as high as $250,000 if the tip leads to an apprehension.
