ADDIS, LA (WAFB) -
Police in Brusly, LA say the man suspected of robbing a pharmacy there actually visited the store earlier in the day to have a prescription filled. They say Monday night's robbery was not a first for 50-year-old Ray Charles Hayes.
Most of Hayes' crimes were committed in Baton Rouge; 23 crimes in all that earned him a stay at a total of nine prison facilities.
Police say Hayes is suspected of robbing a Noah's Pharmacy in Brusly, LA and was later killed by officers after taking a customer hostage and using an Addis Police car as a getaway vehicle.
"From the looks of his rap sheet he's done armed robbery after armed robbery over the years. Conspiracy to commit armed robbery, possession of fire arms...looks like he's done two stints in prison," said Brusly Police Chief Jamie Whaley.
Officers say its clear Hayes was a violent, career criminal.
In 1979, Hayes was charged with armed robbery, first degree murder and aggravated battery. In 1992, three Officers say it's clear Hayes was a violent, career criminal.
In 1979, Hayes was charged with armed robbery, first degree murder and aggravated battery. In 1992, three felony theft and more armed robbery charged were added, including a bank robbery in Livingston in 1992.
Hayes was released from Allen Correctional in September of 2012 after serving time for introducing contraband into the facility.
In 1983, he served almost 10 years in Angola for armed robbery, second degree battery and simple escape.
He was caught after committing another robbery and went back to Angola until 2005.
That was the last time Hayes was on police officer's radar, until last night's pharmacy robbery.
Officers shot and killed Hayes Monday night after they say he repeatedly threatened to kill himself and the hostage who were both inside the wrecked police car Hayes stole after robbing Noah's Pharmacy.
Police now believe Hayes also robbed another pharmacy in the area two weeks ago.
