United States Attorney Ronald C. Gathe, Jr. announced that U.S. District Judge Brian A. Jackson sentenced Floyd C. Hose, Jr., age 38, of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, to 70 months in federal prison following his conviction for bank robbery. The Court further sentenced Hose to serve three years of supervised release following his term of imprisonment and ordered him to pay $9,605 in restitution.
On or about December 5, 2022, Hose entered the Cottonport Bank in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and passed a note to a teller demanding cash. According to reports, Hose said, “don’t do anything stupid or you will get hurt.” He took $9,605 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.
This matter was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Baton Rouge Police Department and was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Edward H. Warner.
