PRAIRIEVILLE - A trio of armed robbers are targeting I-10 area convenience stores in various parishes and hit one at the La. 73 exit overnight, the sheriff's office in Ascension said.
Ascension Parish Sheriff's deputies responded to the Circle K on 73 near I-10 around 2 a.m. Saturday. Three men burst into the store pointing guns at everyone and cleared out the register before driving away in a dark, four-door sedan.
Not long after, the same group tried to rob a store on Hwy. 30 but the doors were locked and couldn't get in, deputies said.
Deputies said they also found out the same group made hits in Jefferson Parish and St. Charles Parish.
