Police Searching for Armed Robbery Suspect in Vestal

Police are looking for two suspects in connection with a robbery outside Walgreens at 17th and South Thursday night.

Suspects reportedly went on a robbery spree early this morning in Opelousas, police said. Police said a man walked into the gas station, demanded money and left.

According to the report, the second suspect approached the counter, knocking merchandise to the floor and taking the cash register.

The victim of the carjacking refused to pursue charges, but charges were pending against the man for the robbery, police said.

The clerk described the robber as a white male, approximately 5-foot-7 inches tall, thin build.

Then, on Tuesday, December 26, the same two suspects robbed an elderly man in the common area of an apartment building in the 600 block of St. Louis Avenue.

Police were unable to locate the suspect, but they did find evidence behind the Valvoline across the street, including shoes, clothes, and a weapon.

Anyone with information on the suspects is asked to contact police Detective T. Slaton at 770-288-8339.
