SULPHUR, LA (KPLC) - In less than 24 hours, a second Sulphur business is targeted by robbers, and police say it looks like it was a inside job.

Last night just before 10 p.m., police tell us an employee at Misse's Grocery at the corner of Lincoln and North Huntington Streets, called police to report that an armed gunman had entered the store and took an undetermined amount of cash.

Once they got to the scene and questioned the employee, police say the story began to sound a little suspicious.

Detectives later learned that it was two employees and a third accomplice that staged the robbery.

Officers later recovered the cash from a residence in Sulphur.

Right now, 26-year-old Damian Bennet, 21-year-old Robert Boudreaux, and 19-year-old Tyler Venable, all of sulphur, are behind bars as the investigation continues.
