Two arrested in Kenner armed robbery  

 Kenner - Two people were arrested Friday, after they committed an armed robbery at the Imperial Garden restaurant located at 3331 Williams Boulevard, in Kenner. 

 On Friday, January 9, 2015, at 8:08 p.m., Keithen Nelson, 23, of 2601 Salem Street, Kenner, and Shamika Brooks, 25, of 2606 Tupelo Street, Kenner, entered Imperial Garden while the business was open and customers were eating.  Both wore dark colored clothing, had their faces covered, while one possessed a firearm.  Both Nelson and Brooks, demanded the employees, behind the counter, to open the cash register.  Once the employees complied, one of the suspects grabbed the entire cash drawer and handed it to the other suspect.   The two then fled the business, in a 2011 Hyundai, with a Texas license plate. 

 A witness from the restaurant provided investigating officers with the license plate to the suspect vehicle. 

 At approximately 9:45 p.m., Kenner Police Officers stopped the suspect vehicle in the 2800 block of Loyola Drive, Kenner, where both Nelson and Brooks were taken into custody.   Cash and receipts taken during the robbery were recovered.  Statements were also obtained; admitting their role in the armed robbery.    Both Keithen Nelson and Shamika Brooks were charged with the crime of armed robbery.  Both remain in custody; no bond has been set.
