DENHAM SPRINGS, La. (BRPROUD) — The Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office says two suspects accused of the Monday armed robbery of a Dollar General are possibly connected to another crime in the area.
Both suspects were arrested Monday after the sheriff’s office sought tips from residents about the crime.
The robbery took place after 2 p.m. at the Dollar General on Arnold Road, according to LPSO. Details of the robbery are limited, however, Sheriff Jason Ard confirms that there were no injuries reported.
“While our investigation continues, we do have enough evidence at this hour to tie these 2 suspects to what we now believe is an attempted armed robbery,” said Sheriff Ard. “This investigation has also led us to evidence that one of these individuals may also be responsible for another crime in our parish.”
The sheriff adds that the clothing stolen earlier Monday was recovered.
