CPSO is looking for woman who robbed Sulphur store

The following is a news release from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office.

Lake Charles, LA – Around 4:30 p.m. Sunday, January 31, the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office was dispatched to a convenience store on E. Houston River Rd. in Sulphur in regard to an armed robbery.

The investigation revealed a woman entered the convenience store, walked up to the counter and told the cashier she wanted to buy two cartons of cigarettes.  When customers walked into the store, she told the cashier she would be right back and walked over to the cooler.

After the customers left the store she walked back up to the counter, showed the cashier a gun and threatened to shoot her as she demanded money.

The woman, who was wearing a light colored hat with her hair tucked under the hat, dark jacket, dark jeans, large sunglasses, and deep red lipstick, took an undisclosed amount of cash before fleeing the store heading east on Houston River Rd. in a 4 door silver Honda, possibly an Accord, with a sticker on the car to the left of the license plate, and a dent on the back of the car driven by a male accomplice.

Anyone with information regarding this robbery is asked to call Crimestoppers at 439-2222. CPSO Detective Mark Clark is the lead investigator on this case.
