The Iberville Parish Sheriff's Office on Monday announced the arrest of the 34-year-old man they suspect pulled off three armed robberies overnight last week in three parishes.
Brandon Washington, 14773 Old Spanish Trail, Paradis, was arrested over the weekend in Lake Charles in connection to three armed robberies of convenience stores in St. John, Ascension and Iberville parishes in the late night hours of Dec. 12, said Iberville Parish Sheriff Brett Stassi.
Washington was booked into the Iberville Parish jail on one count of armed robbery and faces additional counts in the two other parishes.
The sheriff said Washington's arrest was made possible through surveillance footage and "good, hard police work."
Authorities had said Washington entered each store pretending to buy a pack of gum, and after the cashier opened their register, he pulled out his gun and took money from the register. No injuries were reported in any of the robberies.
