Iberia Crime Stoppers is asking for help in identifying an armed robbery suspect.

On the morning of September 27, 2018, the suspect entered the Southland Inn lobby armed with a handgun. He pointed the gun at the clerk and two guests and threatened to kill them, according to investigators. He forced one of the guest onto the ground and ordered the second guest to retrieve the money from the register. The guest then proceeded to remove the money from the register and handed it to the suspect, who fled the business on foot in an unknown direction.

If you can help identify the suspect, submit an anonymous tip at or call (337) 364-TIPS.
