Alleged "game of chance" robbers jailed in Webster Parish
MINDEN, LA (KSLA) -
Three men from Cincinnati, Ohio were arrested in Minden for allegedly robbing a man of his money during a "game of chance" at a truck stop in Shreveport.
Shreveport Police investigators were contacted by Minden authorities regarding an alleged robbery that happened Friday at the Petro Truck Stop in the 6900 block of West Bert Kouns Industrial Loop. Minden Police were called to the Love's Truck stop in Minden by a man claiming to have been robbed in Shreveport. He told Minden investigators that he saw the 3 men who took his money on Friday.
Minden officers took the trio into custody.
Shreveport Property Crimes detectives went to Minden Saturday to investigate. After speaking with the victim, it was determined that he was lured into some sort of "game of chance" by the men at the Petro Truck Stop. As he pulled out his wallet, one of the men snatched his money and they all left the scene driving east on Interstate 20, police said.
Arrest warrants were obtained for Roy Wallace, 41, Darrell Noel, 29, and Jerry Chandler, 65, all of Cincinnati, Ohio. Each is charged with one count of simple robbery. Their bonds are set at $20,000 each.
The suspects are being held in Webster Parish until they can be extradited back to Shreveport.
Investigators say the men may have victimized another person in Shreveport and working to see if additional charges will be filed.
