Man In Custody For New Iberia Convenience Store Robbery
Iberia Parish Sheriff's deputies have arrested 22-year-old Tyrone Jackson for the armed robbery of the Penny Wise convenience store on Jane Street around 6:00 a.m. this morning.
Iberia Parish Sheriff Louis Ackal says deputies were called to the store after a man walked in, pulled out a handgun and demanded money from the person behind the counter.
The man then fled on foot.
Investigators were able to develop Jackson as a suspect after getting a description from the clerk at the store.
Jackson was found in the 1400 block of Fulton Street, and he was charged with armed robbery.
Detectives say Jackson could be responsible for other robberies in their parish, so their investigation is ongoing.
