LABADIEVILLE, La. (BRPROUD) — Deputies arrested a suspect accused of stealing cash from a Quick Stop less than an hour after the crime was reported.

Deputies responded to the Quick Stop on LA 1 on Monday, Nov. 21 where a suspect allegedly demanded money at 8:16 p.m. before leaving with a “very minimal amount of cash.”

“A flurry of deputies flooded the area within minutes and initiated their investigation,” the Assumption Parish Sheriff’s Office said.

About forty minutes later, the suspect was detained and arrested.

The suspect, Christopher Gregory Knockum, 32, of Labadieville, was arrested on a charge of armed robbery with a firearm.
