WESTLAKE, LA (KPLC) - A Westlake business was robbed Friday and a suspect is in custody, authorities said.

Westlake Police Chief Michael Dickerson said 24-year-old Johnathon Predium has been arrested on charges of first-degree robbery and theft.

Dickerson said Predium, an ex-employee at WebTronics in Westlake, left the store with a camera and cash he took from one of the store employees.

Bond is pending.

WebTronics owner Gerrit Lawrence said he was away from the store at the time of the incident and that his two sons and a business partner working in the store called him to tell him about it.
