Franklinton man arrested after robbing the same store twice

KENNER - A Franklinton man, who claims he has been living in the 1600 block of Newport Place, Kenner, since Saturday, has been arrested and charged with armed robbery (2-counts) after he robbed the same store twice.  At approximately 2:42 a.m. (Wednesday, January 20, 2010), the Kenner Police Department responded to an armed robbery at the Shell Station, located at 3206 Williams Boulevard, in Kenner, after learning a male suspect entered the store, produced a handgun and demanded money.  Upon the male suspect fleeing the store, Kenner Police Officer Nicholas Engler saw the suspect (Raymond Joseph Davis, 18) get into a vehicle which he stopped at 33rd Street and Williams Boulevard.  At the time of the stop, Davis was in possession of a handgun and the money taken from the robbery. 

Davis was interviewed by Detective Brian McGregor and Officer David Schulter concerning a similar armed robbery that occurred at the same location, on Sunday, January 17, 2010, at 0512 hours, in which a male suspect entered the store, produced a handgun and demanded money.  After obtaining the money, the male suspect fled eastbound on 32nd Street on foot.  While interviewing Davis, he confessed to committing both armed robberies because he was unemployed and needed money. 

At the time of this press release, Davis remains in custody, no bond has been set. 

Chief Steve Caraway urges anyone with information concerning this incident, to call the Kenner Police Department at (504) 712-2222 or Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
