One man has been arrested and a second being sought in the armed robbery of the Dollar General in Luling.
St. Charles Parish deputies responded to the robbery at the store at 12309 Highway 90 in Luling, which occurred around 7:20 p.m. Thursday (March 28).
Sheriff Greg Champagne said a black male clad in black clothing and sunglasses entered the store carrying a handgun. The suspect demanded the register be opened, but the employee was unable to it so he grabbed cigarettes and fled.
A short time later, detectives learned the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office arrested a subject believed to have been involved in the armed robbery at the same store. Working in partnership with Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office, the detectives were able to identify the apprehended subject as Larry Davis, a 50-year-old resident of New Orleans.
Davis is currently incarcerated in the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center, pending criminal charges in Jefferson Parish. An arrest warrant will be secured for his arrest in St. Charles Parish, which will be fulfilled upon his release from the Jefferson Parish jail.
Also, during the investigation, a second subject with alleged involvement was developed. The second subject, Israel Freeman, a 29-year-old New Orleans resident, is being sought in connection to the Luling robbery.
Anyone with information about the robbery or Freeman’s whereabouts should contact Detective Thomas Plaisance of the St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office at (985) 783-1135 or contact 911.
