Amite- District Attorney Scott M. Perrilloux reports that 20-year-old, Roy Cross, of Hammond, LA, pleaded no contest to armed robbery with the use of a firearm.

On June 6, 2017, Hammond Police were dispatched to the Circle K located on South Morrison Boulevard in reference to a robbery.

Upon officers’ arrival contact was made with the cashier who stated that two males wearing dark clothing entered the store and began arguing with other customers telling them not to leave. The cashier then advised officers that the males began to demand money from the cash register.

The cashier opened the cash register and gave the two individuals the money then the suspects fled on foot headed southbound. The incident was captured on the business’s surveillance camera.

On June 8, 2017 Hammond detectives did a press release on the armed robbery that took place on June 6th at the Circle K. On June 12th detectives received information that one of the possible suspect was staying at Tangi Village Apartments.

At the time detectives went to Tangi Village Apartments and gained consent to search the apartment unit. Before the search detectives made contact with Roy Cross who was in the apartment, Cross fit the description of one of the males involved in the robbery. Cross was asked to sit outside until the search was complete. While searching the apartment detectives found the book bag that one of the suspects was wearing during the robbery.

Detectives also found both hoodies and a glove that was worn during the incident. All items were photographed and placed into evidence. Detectives arrested Roy Cross and transported him to the Hammond Police Department jail where he was booked accordingly.

Roy Cross was sentenced to 15 years with the department of corrections.

Assistant District Attorney Matthew S. Belser represented the State of Louisiana in this case; Judge Robert H. Morrison handed down the sentence.
