LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Three men have been arrested on armed robbery charges after the Dairy Barn location on East Prien Lake Road was robbed on Friday night.

Roshon Dumas, 25, and Jamar Stewart, 21, both of Griffin Street, and Travalle Poullard, 22, of Lake Charles were arrested and charged with armed robbery, armed robbery with a firearm and obstruction of justice.

On Friday night, November 26, the three men reportedly entered the Dairy Barn location on East Prien Lake Road around 9:15 p.m. Officials say they were armed with a shotgun, a handgun and pepper spray.

Deputies say they pointed the shotgun at the employees and demanded money. One employee was forced to open the safe while another was forced to remove his clothes and lie on the floor. Other employees were sprayed with the pepper spray.

The men left reportedly left the location with an undisclosed amount of money and some of the victims' personal belongings.

Immediately following the robbery, a Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office deputy was flagged down by the employees. Within 30 minutes, deputies were able to determine the car used in the robbery was parked in the driveway of a home on Griffin Street in Lake Charles.

Deputies arrived at the house and a two-hour stand-off ensued before the suspects came out of the home without incident.

A judge set Dumas' and Stewart's bond at $225,000 and Poullard's bond at $350,000.

All of the cash and victims' personal items were recovered at the house on Griffin Street.
