INDIAN BAYOU, La. (KLFY)- Deputies are searching for a suspect after a Dollar General store was robbed at gunpoint Wednesday morning.

Just after 9:02 p.m. the Vermilion Parish Sheriff’s Office received a call in reference to an armed robbery at the Dollar General located on La. 700 in Indian Bayou.

Officers say a man 5’07” tall weighing 160 pounds entered the store at approximately 8:50 p.m.

He was wearing what appeared to be a white jumpsuit, gloves and some type of clothing covering his face, authorities said.


Once inside the store, the alleged suspect reportedly placed what was described as a small-caliber handgun, possibly a revolver, on the counter and demanded all money from the register.

He then left the store in an unknown direction.

Authorities do not know if he fled on foot of left in a vehicle.

At this time it is unknown what mode of transportation the suspect was using or if he had any accomplices.

Sheriff Couvillon said investigators are “working diligently in an attempt to identify the person and/or persons responsible for this crime.”
