NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - A man arrested for two bank robberies in the city now faces charges for holding up a Walgreens in New Orleans East.
FBI agents picked up David Micheal Shearod on Monday.
Federal authorities say Shearod first robbed a Liberty Bank inside a Rouse's supermarket in the 6600 block of Franklin Avenue on Oct. 22. Then, on Dec.1, Shearod allegedly robbed a Regions Bank at 541 Chartres St. in the French Quarter.
New Orleans police say just a day before Shearod was arrested he held up the Walgreens in the 4200 block of Chef Menteur Highway.
Investigators say on Dec. 13. around 4:45 p.m. Shearod entered the store, approached the cashier at the pharmacy and said that he had a prescription to pick up. Police say during the conversation the suspect implied that he had a gun and demanded money. Once the cashier complied, the suspect fled on foot with an undetermined amount of cash.
Shearod was booked with armed robbery for the Walgreens incident.
