The New Orleans Police Department- Public Information Office

New Orleans Police Nab Suspect in an Attempted Early Morning Bank Robbery on Carrollton

The New Orleans Police Department in conjunction with the FBI arrested 49 - year- old Calvin Johnson in connection with an attempted Mid City bank robbery. The incident occurred around 10 this morning at the Capital One Bank located in the 4100 Block of Canal Street. 

Detectives reported Calvin Johnson entered the bank and handed a bank teller a note with the words “No bait” written on it. Johnson became startled at which time he   grabbed the note and walked out of the bank. Officers on proactive patrol in the 4300 block of South Carrollton Ave observed a subject matching the description of Calvin Johnson.  The officers brought Calvin Johnson back to the bank where the FBI agents made a positive identification.

Calvin Johnson currently has outstanding warrants for Forgery and Theft from an incident in 2010. New Orleans Police will book Johnson with the outstanding warrants while the FBI will book him with the Attempted Bank Robbery.

The New Orleans Police Department, under the leadership of Superintendent Ronal W. Serpas, is engaged in a complete transformation in its approach to ensuring that New Orleans is a safer place to live, work and visit. The police force, which currently employs dedicated men and women, is committed to transparency, accountability, collaboration and integrity.
