Accused armed robber’s bond gets boost in bond reduction hearing

CALCASIEU PARISH, LA (KPLC) - Be careful what you ask for.

Jason Ary, 25, was in court Friday in Lake Charles, asking to get his $85,000 bond reduced in his armed robbery case.

However, after hearing from prosecutors, Judge Ron Ware rejected the request and instead, raised Ary's bond to $150,000.

Prosecutors told the court that Ary tried to fire the gun during the robbery but when it jammed, he pistol whipped the victim.
