The St. Martin Parish Sheriff's Office has arrested a Lafayette man in a string of casino robberies.
Billy Davis was arrested by the U.S. Marshals Violent Offender Task Force in Springhill. The sheriff's office says Davis was wanted by investigators after he was identified as the person who attempted to rob a clerk back in August at the Cash Magic Casino on the Breaux Bridge Hwy. Thirty minutes after the first robbery, deputies say he then committed a second robbery at the Breaux Bridge Casino also located on the Breaux Bridge Hwy.
Davis will be extradited back to St. Martin Parish where he will be booked into the St. Martin Parish Correctional Center for attempted simple robbery and simple robbery.
