Louisiana (Lori Lyons-The Times-Picayune) – St. John the Baptist Parish Sheriff’s deputies have arrested a LaPlace man they say robbed a Reserve grocery store twice in on one night.
Jermaine Carter, 30, 708 Colony Drive, LaPlace, was arrested Friday at his home and booked with two counts of armed robbery. He remained in the St. John Parish jail with bond set at $120,000.
According to a Sheriff’s Office report, the manager of the store, which is located on River Road in Reserve, alerted authorities at 12:17 p.m. on Friday that his store had been robbed twice the night before. Deputies met with the manager and viewed recorded video surveillance from the store. Investigators observed a man , later identified as Carter, enter the store twice — each time brandishing a firearm — and leave with merchandise.
No one was injured, authorities say.
