Lafayette police are looking for a man who used a shotgun to rob Bayou State Pawn Shop at 1308 Moss Street around 10:20 Monday morning. "The suspect, a black male approximately 5'10", 185 pounds, entered the business wearing a bandana over his face and carrying a shotgun. He immediately advised everyone inside to lie on the floor," Cpl. Paul Mouton said.
No one was injured, but the robber and an employee fought before the suspect left the building. The robber got away with an undisclosed amount of cash from the cash register. Anyone with information about the robbery or the identity of the suspect should call the Lafayette Police Department at 291-8600 or Crime Stoppers at 232-TIPS.
