A 17-year-old and two juveniles are accused in the theft of a cash box at a local school fundraiser.

According to a news release from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office, Darterious Bartie and two 16-year-olds are all facing a charge of robbery.

Authorities said on Jan. 15, at approximately 1:35 p.m., deputies were dispatched to LaGrange High School regarding a robbery.

Upon arrival, deputies were told that while school staff members were selling plate lunches at the concession area to raise funds for the baseball team, a student ran up and grabbed the cash box and fled on foot.

The box contained an undisclosed amount of cash.

After a week-long investigation, detectives arrested Bartie, of Lake Charles, and the two juveniles, all students at the school.
