United States Attorney Ronald C. Gathe, Jr. announced that Floyd C. Hose, Jr., age 38, of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, pled guilty before U.S. District Judge Brian A. Jackson to bank robbery.

According to admissions made during his plea, on December 5, 2022, Hose entered the Cottonport Bank at 6500 Corporate Boulevard, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and passed a note to a teller demanding cash. Hose took $9,605.00 from the teller and fled the bank.  During a search of Hose’s apartment, detectives located a mask suspected to be worn during the robbery and money suspected to be taken during the robbery.  After Hose’s arrest, he confessed to the robbery and reported that he committed the robbery to help pay off several debts he had.

This matter was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Baton Rouge Police Department and is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Harley W. Ferguson.
