Surveillance Cameras show suspects entering a Circle K in Ascension Parish, guns in hand, with masks.

The Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office (APSO) is searching for three armed robbery suspects after a Circle K convenience store on Highway 73 at I-10 was robbed early Saturday morning, these suspects are believed to be connected to similar acts in other parishes.

When police arrived on the scene they were informed that three black males entered the front of the store, guns in hand, with their faces covered. The suspects cleared the register and fled the scene in a dark colored four-door sedan.

Authorities later learned that the same three suspects attempted to rob another convenient store on Highway 30, but were unsuccessful because the doors were locked. Further investigation led police to believe that the same suspects have committed similar acts in Jefferson and St. Charles Parishes.
