Man accused of robbing pizza place he worked at
DONALDSONVILLE - Sheriff's deputies accused an Ascension Parish man of working with his cousin to steal from the pizza place he worked at this week.
Deputies charged Karnell Williams, 21, and Devin Herbert, 19, with simple burglary and theft after their arrests Thursday night.
Chief Deputy Tony Bacala said the two men were detained during a traffic stop just after midnight, and deputies learned they may have been involved in a burglary at the Domino's Pizza on Highway 3089 in Donaldsonville. Investigators said they found evidence the pizza place had been burglarized, and they learned Williams regularly closed the business on Thursday nights.
Detectives said Williams propped the door open before leaving, then he later came back with his cousin Herbert and stole money from the pizza place's safe and cash registers.
The two men were booked into the parish jail. Bond had not been set as of Friday morning. Deputies said their investigation is still going and could lead to more charges.
