New Orleans, La.- Police and the FBI could use your help identifying and finding the man they say robbed a bank in New Orleans East just after noon on Monday.

Investigators say the man walked up to a teller window at the Capital One Bank in the 5600 block of Bullard Avenue and indicated he had a weapon. He handed the teller a note demanding money and got away with an undetermined amount of cash.

The robber ran away on Lake Forest Boulevard. Investigators say the man, who is about 6-feet tall, has gold teeth on top and bottom and was wearing glasses with small rims.

Anyone with information about the robbery should contact the FBI at 504-816-3000 or Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111.  The Metropolitan Orleans Bank Security Association is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and indictment of the bank robber.
