Two men are in the Lafayette Parish Jail on armed robbery charges after they allegedly used a broomstick to rob a Hub City convenience store.
The incident took place around 3:00 Tuesday morning at the Cracker Barrel in the 1700 block of North University Avenue.
Investigators say 43-year-old Maral George and 30-year-old Jonathon Aubrey pinned down the cashier and stole $100, two beers, and two packs of cigarettes.
George was arrested a few hours later after an officer recognized him from the surveillance video. Aubrey was arrested later that evening.
