A Breaux Bridge man is awaiting extradition to Houston on robbery charges. Alex LaFleur was arrested in Lafayette on an unrelated warrant.
Harris County sheriff's deputies say pepper-sprayed a cell phone store clerk during the May 3 incident before getting away with a tablet device. Officials ran the surveillance video on Houston-area TV stations, and a viewer tipped off investigators to the identities of LaFleur and his accomplice.
LaFleur remains in the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center.
