CALCASIEU PARISH, LA (KPLC) -

Four Texas men are in custody following an armed robbery in the parking lot of a Vinton casino, authorities said.

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Kim Myers said Jacoven D. Levi, Darius M. Mikel, Donald F. Griffin-Gosey and Darrius J. Arnold were arrested Sunday night.

"The victims said that while sitting inside their vehicle, they were approached by Mikel and Levi," Myers said Monday in a news release. "Mikel and Levi, who armed with a firearm, fled after stealing the victims' cell phones and wallets."

Myers said deputies pulled the suspects' vehicle over on Interstate 10 near the Texas-Louisiana border.

Griffin-Gosey, 19, and Arnold, 22, were in the vehicle when it was pulled over, Myers said.

Levi, 19, has been charged with armed robbery and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Mikel, 19, Griffin-Gosey and Arnold have been charged with principle to armed robbery.

Bond was pending for each man.
