SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

Three adults and one juvenile have been arrested in the robbery of a Shreveport convenience store early Wednesday morning.

The robbery happened at the Circle K in the 6300 block of Jefferson Paige Road. Investigators say it all started when some of the suspects tried to make a purchase at the counter, but when their debit card didn't work, they came back with a man.

They say that man demanded money, and indicated he had a gun in his pocket.

"There was not actually a gun seen, the clerk was made to believe that one of the suspects was armed. They had their hands in their pockets motioning like they may have been armed," said Cpl. Marcus Hines with the Shreveport Police Department.

Officers with the Shreveport Police Department's Tactical Robbery Unit were able to gather information, including a vehicle description, that helped lead them to a home in the 3500 block of Pines Road.

"There was evidence gathered at the scene. There was also a vehicle description that matched that of the suspects located there at the home in the 3500 block of Pines Road. Officers were able to locate that vehicle, subsequently arresting the persons allegedly involved in the robbery," said Cpl. Hines.

At the home police reportedly found 20-year-old Miquon Rachal, 22-year-old Ervin Rachal and 25-year-old Merri Stone, along with a 13-year-old juvenile. All four were arrested shortly after the robbery happened by the Shreveport Police Department's Tactical Robbery Unit. 

All three adults and the 13-year-old juvenile each face a charge of first degree robbery.

Police say they will continue to investigate to determine if the suspects are connected to any other robberies.

    A deadly virus is threatening the crawfish industry in Southwest Louisiana. It's called white spot syndrome virus and it was first discovered in Thailand, but somehow it made its way to ponds in South Louisiana and specialists are struggling to find the funds to research a solution.  “The catch was increasing and increasing and then it dropped 70% and that's when you saw the dead crawfish floating in the water,” said a crawfish farmer of 34 years, Ian Garbarino.
