Louisiana Alligator Buyers Held Up
Some alligator buyers were robbed at gunpoint yesterday afternoon. St. Mary Parish deputies are searching for three suspects.
Deputies say the suspects drove up to a grassy area near Leroy's Barber Shop on Lake Palourde Road, allegedly ordered the victims to get on the ground, and then took a briefcase with 65-hundred dollars and two cellphones.
Witnesses described a getaway car as being a dark gray four door, possibly a Toyota Camry. A black male was driving, with a second black male in the front passenger's seat and a third suspect, a white male, in the back of the car.
The two passengers were wearing blue jeans and blue bandanas over their faces.
Anyone with information on the robbery is urged to call the St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office.
