Press Release from District Attorney Scott Perrilloux:

LIVINGSTON---District Attorney Scott M. Perrilloux reports that 25-year-old Benjamin White, of Hammond, LA, pleaded no contest to armed robbery.

On March 22, 2018, Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies were dispatched to the Dollar General in Albany, LA in reference to an armed robbery with possible shots fired. Upon arrival, deputies learned that two males entered the Dollar General armed with handguns advising everyone to get on the ground and pointed a handgun at the cashier demanding the cash registers be opened. During the robbery one of the suspects fired a shot at the store manager as she was coming out of an office area. The suspects then ran from the Dollar General headed east towards a gravel road that runs parallel to the store. Detectives located a spent .40 caliber shell casing along with several pieces of fragmented bullet. As detectives canvased the area a cellphone was found on the gravel road that runs parallel to Dollar General, which is where the suspects headed when they exited the store. The cellphone was receiving alerts and an email address implicating Jermaine White was identified on the screen of the cellphone. Due to the cellphone being locked detectives could not gain access into the phone. A passerby stated that while traveling passed the Dollar General an early 2000’s model silver Chevrolet Impala with dark tint, and numerous dents was seen backed into an abandoned driveway about 100 yards east of the store. A short time later, the passerby noticed the same vehicle to now be sitting in the gravel area next door to the store.

LPSO detectives contacted TPSO detectives for possible information on Jermaine White. TPSO detectives were able to locate an address for White at TangiVillage Apartments in Hammond. When detectives arrived to the apartments the silver 2000 Chevrolet Impala with dark tinted windows, and numerous dents was observed sitting across from White’s suspected apartment building. Detectives also noticed several surveillance cameras in the area. Additionally, the cellphone recovered from the Dollar General started to ring and receive messages when it automatically connected to the apartment building’s Wi-Fi. While seizing the vehicle, the .40 caliber handgun and three magazines were located in a backpack in the trunk. During the investigation of the vehicle, White walked up to detectives and was later taken into custody. White admitted that he and his brother Benjamin White entered into the Dollar General in Albany to commit the robbery and Benjamin White fired a shot in the direction of the employee then fled from the store. Benjamin White was taken into custody on March 26, 2018.

Benjamin White was sentenced to 10 years with the department of corrections. He is to serve the sentence without the benefit of probation, parole, or suspension of sentence.
