Police are looking for the 300-pound gunman who robbed a Sabine State Bank and Trust branch in
Alexandria.

Based on witness accounts, police say the robber is a male who stands about 6 feet tall.

He was wearing a tan baseball cap, white button-down shirt, dark shirt underneath and dark pants -- possibly jeans -- during the robbery.

Police says the bandit was last seen leaving the bank Tuesday in a car with a white-colored or very faded truck.

Officials have not released how much money the gunman stole during the heist.

This is the second bank robbery to take place in Alexandria during the month of August.

The first occurred Aug. 5 at a Union Bank branch.

Two suspects were arrested in that robbery.
