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

Lake Charles, LA – On April 6 at approximately 1:35 am, Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office deputies responded to 2557 Highway 171 in reference to an armed robbery. Upon arrival, deputies learned the Lucky Star Casino had been robbed at gunpoint by two men. Both men were armed and fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Investigation led detectives to David Earl Murdock, Jr., 27, and Cody Lee Guidry, 24, both of Lake Charles.  They learned the two men had left the area and were staying with friends in Catahoula Parish.  Detectives notified officials with the Catahoula Parish Sheriff's Office that a BOLO had been issued as well as warrants for their arrest in connection with armed robbery.

With the assistance of the Catahoula Parish Sheriff's Office, both Murdock and Guidry were arrested without incident in Jonesville, LA at approximately 5:40 pm yesterday evening. Both Murdock and Guidry are charged with armed robbery. Judge Kent Savoie set a bond of $250,000.   Upon their return today, they will be booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center.

Guidry was convicted of possession of Ecstasy in July 2004. He was sentenced to five years incarceration with the Department of Corrections but had been released and was on parole until June 2010.

Murdock was convicted of distribution of schedule III narcotics in March 2007. He was sentenced to five years incarceration (suspended) with three years supervised probation until March 2010. A contempt of court warrant had been issued on Murdock prior to his satisfying his probation.

CPSO Detective Billy Spees, Jr. is the lead investigator on this case.
