The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office is looking for a suspect in the robbery of a Lake Charles store.

According to a news release from the Sheriff's Office, on March 28, at approximately 9:30 p.m., deputies were dispatched to the Dollar General Store, located at 5725 Highway 14 in Lake Charles, in reference to an armed robbery.
