NEW ORLEANS (AP) - New Orleans police have arrested a 50-year-old Mississippi man sought in the robberies of 3 banks in recent months, when he returned to a bank in New Orleans' Central Business District and robbed it for a second time.
Dwayne Eugene Hupp, of Bay St. Louis, was arrested Thursday at Crescent Bank & Trust after bank security guards watched him rob the bank then try to leave with the cash.
The FBI says security officers detained the robber until police arrived.
Once in police custody, authorities say Hupp confessed to robbing Crescent Bank & Trust on Sept. 4 and a Liberty Bank & Trust branch on Aug. 6 and Sept. 10.
