Police searching for suspect connected to armed robbery

ALLEN PARISH, LA (KPLC) -

Allen Parish Sheriff's Office responded to a 911 call of an armed robbery at Doucet's Grocery on October 4th at approximately 11:49 a.m.

Chief Investigator Peggy Kennedy says that the suspect asked the clerk for her vehicle, and took off in the car. The vehicle was later recovered by authorities on Buddy Doyle Rd.

They believe that the suspect fled in another mode of transportation.

The suspect is described as a stocky male about 5'8 to 5'9', 225 to 250 pounds, between the age of 20 to 30-years-old. He was last seen wearing a camo jacket, denim jeans, camo covering on his head, sunglasses, and a bandanna covering his face. He was also carrying a handgun.

The clerk was the only one in the store, and no injuries were reported. The store has now re-opened.

If anyone has any information please call the Allen Parish Sheriff's Office.
