SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – A Bossier City man accused of robbing the WESLA Credit Union in Shreveport last year is now in custody.

According to the Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Office, the U.S Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force found 38-year-old Troy Donnell Baker at a house on Fullilove Drive after receiving information from Shreveport Caddo Crime Stoppers of his whereabouts. Authorities say Baker was arrested Morning morning without incident.

CPSO says Baker is booked into the Caddo Correctional Center for armed robbery with a $500,00 bond.
