SULPHUR, LA (KPLC) -

Four people are facing charges in relation to an armed robbery at the Circle K store at 444 West Burton in Sulphur, according to a news release from the Sulphur Police Department.

Sulphur Police Chief Lewis Coats reports that the incident happened at 12:15 a.m. Sunday.

Arrested and booked in the case were 21-year-old Phenique Rashad Johnson, of Lake Charles. He was charged with possession of a firearm by a felon, robbery with a firearm and armed robbery. Bond was set at $200,000.

Treyvon Devonta Humphrey, 17, of Lake Charles, was charged with robbery with a firearm and armed robbery. Humphrey's bond was set at $165,000.

Also arrested and for armed robbery and robbery with a firearm were Ja'Marion John Edwards, 18, of Lake Charles, and Tamara Annette Brown, 20, of Lake Charles. Both Edwards and Brown are being held on a $55,000 bond.

Coats said two black males entered the store Sunday with covered faces and a handgun, demanding cash. After receiving a small amount of cash, Coats said the males reportedly fled on foot.

"Before officers were dispatched to the robbery, an officer of the Sulphur Police Department checked a suspicious vehicle where he identified each occupant and the description of the vehicle only to learn a short time later that they were the suspects involved in the robbery which had occurred only moments before," Coats said.

Coats said after notifying local authorities of the suspect's vehicle, the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office performed a traffic stop and found evidence from the robbery located in the vehicle. 

Sulphur Police were then notified which led the investigators to four suspects in Lake Charles later Sunday, Coats said.

Coats said no store employees were injured in the incident. He said the investigation continues.

Those with information in the case are asked to call Sulphur Police Department at 337-527-4550 or Crime Stoppers 337-439-2222.
