Wrecked car and pair of $2 bills helped catch alleged credit union robber

EBRSO armed robbery and burglary detectives, with the assistance of other agencies, arrested an alleged credit union robber the day after the robbery.

Officials say Holden Myles, 36, of Gonzales, was charged with simple robbery.

On Dec. 19 at approximately 4:24 p.m., authorities say Myles entered EFCU (credit union) on Market St. near Coursey Blvd wearing a mask. Myles demanded money and fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of money.

EBRSO says the teller gave the suspect currency, including a pair of two-dollar bills.

After reviewing surveillance footage and searching databases, EBRSO Detectives identified Myles as the owner of the suspect vehicle due to distinctive damage and vehicle markings.

The following day, with the assistance of the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office, Detectives were able to locate the robbery clothes at the suspect’s residence in Gonzales.

Detectives located Myles and his vehicle in Port Sulphur, and the Plaquemine Parish Sheriff’s Office assisted in taking him into custody on Dec. 20.

Gloves and the bag used during the robbery were located inside Myles’ vehicle, and Myles had currency in his possession, which included a pair of two dollar bills. Myles was booked into Plaquemine Parish Prison and will be transported to EBR Parish Prison later.
