BOM Bank in Castor will be closed Thursday, April 18, and Friday, April 19 as a courtesy to our staff. We will resume business on Monday, April 22 with regular business hours and services. We are asking our Castor customers to please utilize the Ringgold branch for their banking needs during this difficult time. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate our customer’s loyalty and cooperation.

At the time of the robbery, there were two employees and one customer inside the bank. No one was injured.

Ken Hale, President and CEO, and Brandy Tilley, Senior Vice President and Human Resource Officer, along with other staff, arrived on site within 45 minutes of the robbery and stayed with the staff until the preliminary investigation was complete.

BOM Bank would like to thank the Bienville Parish Sheriff’s Office and Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office and first responders for their quick response and assistance in this matter. They are all truly appreciated.

We would also like to thank the Castor community for the prayers and consideration at this time.
