OPSO Arrests Two on Armed Robbery Charges

On February 9, 2015 Ouachita Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a reported armed robbery on Burg Jones Lane in Monroe.  The robbery victim stated to deputies that while she was sitting in her parked car, a young male subject approached her and advised the tail light was damaged on her vehicle.  She then exited the vehicle to check the damage and was confronted by two male subjects, one armed with a board and the other a black colored hand gun.  The victim further stated the suspect with the board struck her with it several times while the suspect armed with the gun pointed it at her.  During the assault, one of the suspects went into her vehicle and stole a large amount of cash from the console.  Both suspects then fled on foot and were not located by deputies searching the area at that time.

On February 10, 2015 Ouachita Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a report of two suspicious male juveniles in the same general area.  The complainant advised the two had came to her residence and told her that a neighbor needed help.  However, she was suspicious of the two and did not exit the residence, contacting OPSO instead.  Deputies searched the area and located the two suspects, one armed with a black BB pistol and the other a .22 caliber rifle.  Follow up investigation determined the two suspects committed the armed robbery on Feb. 9th and had planned to rob the female victim that reported the suspicious activity had she exited her residence.  The suspects, both juveniles, were arrested and placed in Green Oaks on one count of Armed Robbery and one count of Conspiracy to Commit Armed Robbery each.
