Marrero financial institution theft suspect arrested close to Baton Rouge: JPSO

A 59-year-old West Bank man was arrested outside of Baton Rouge Thursday (Jan. 11), a week after investigators say he robbed a Capitol One bank in Marrero, according to JPSO spokesman Lt. Jason Rivarde.

James Daigrepont, 59, of Marrero was captured by Sheriff’s deputies with help from the U.S. Marshals and taken to the Jefferson Parish jail, where he was booked with one count of first-degree robbery.

JPSO Robbery Detective Ryan Fanguy obtained an arrest warrant for Daigrepont after a witness identified him as the robber in the Jan. 4 robbery of the Capital One branch at 4601 West Bank Expressway, authorities said.

No one was injured in the holdup, reported about 3:21 p.m., JPSO said.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, Daigrepont robbed the bank by presenting a demand note to the teller in which he claimed he was armed. The teller complied, and the robber escaped with an undisclosed amount of money.

Following his arrest, Daigrepont admitted to robbing the bank and identified himself in surveillance photographs recovered from the scene, authorities said.
