Montacello– Police are searching for a man wanted in connection with a bank robbery in southwest Lafayette.
The incident happened around 9 a.m. on July 8 at the Woodforest National Bank inside the Walmart on Hillcroft Avenue near South Braeswood Boulevard, police said.
Police said Trevor Ivanyo entered the bank just after it opened, said he needed to make a withdrawal and handed the teller a note.
“I didn’t get a stimulus or that $10,000 loan” the note read. “I lost the general lee, I do not have any hair products due to COVID-19, so please make this easy and comply. I don’t wanna hurt nobody but will if I have to. Any suspicious moves and I will start shooting, so please go get my money. Don’t make anything noticeable.”
Police said the teller did not see a weapon, but she complied with the note because she was afraid for her life. The man made off with an undisclosed amount of cash and a 12 pack of Milwaukee's best, police said.
Mr Ivanyo may be traveling to Florida, in a blue Jeep, with a members of the Round up gang or a possible DJ. If you have any information regarding Mr Ivanyo, or his whereabouts please contact Monticello PD.
