SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - Two people are in police custody Tuesday morning in connection with several armed robberies that happened overnight.

Officials with the Shreveport Police Department say the first call came around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 9 from the Circle K in the 400 block of Kings Highway. The man and the woman were reportedly seen leaving in a white Nissan with a Texas license plate.

Not long after, police got another call about multiple armed robberies at Circle K stores throughout Shreveport. Each report claimed a man and woman entered the store armed and demanded money and/or cigarettes. Each report indicated the couple left in a white Nissan.

Then around 4 a.m., police say they got a call about a suspicious grey Nissan SUV at the Circle K at Linwood Avenue and W 70th Street. Officers responded and found an adult female and a 17-year-old male. The woman has been identified as Lyneisha Clark.
