Armed Robbery and Manhunt in Desoto Parish
Deputies are on the hunt for an armed robbery suspect. Sheriff Rodney Arbuckle says a manhunt continues this morning.
A little after 5:00 a.m. Monday morning, two suspects entered the Relay Station on Highway 175 in Frierson, LA, and committed an armed robbery. The suspects are believed to be two heavy set black males wearing all black clothing. The suspects fled in a gray colored car.
Patrol deputies were able to locate a vehicle matching the description in the area of Highway 175 and Highway 5. At this time, it is believed the suspects were on foot in the area. Deputies are currently at the location attempting to locate the suspects. We do have reason to believe the suspects are armed and should be considered dangerous.
Citizens that are living in the area, or drivers that are passing through the area, are asked to be alert and report any suspicious activity to our dispatch by calling (318) 872-3956.
