Multi-agency bust leads to armed robbery arrests and seizures of drugs and guns

BATON ROUGE — Nine people were arrested Tuesday for an alleged connection to a string of ATM robberies and drug deals in the area.

The multi-agency bust included BRPD and the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office.

Police were investigating several armed robberies of ATM technicians in Baton Rouge between August 2023 and February 2024.

Law enforcement agents made a controlled crack cocaine purchase from the suspects on Scenic Highway on Tuesday evening.

Police say that a few hours later, the agents heard from BRPD that another ATM technician was robbed and that the vehicle used in the crime was linked to the same suspects. Investigators later learned the vehicle was reported stolen in Lake Charles.

Police say the suspected vehicle appeared at the drug distribution location on Scenic Highway later that evening and then left shortly after, with agents following behind.

Authorities tried to stop the vehicle, but the chase reached a dead end on Mensia Place, where the two suspects tried to run away.

Agents say the suspects were throwing items on I-110 South near Harding Boulevard.

Along with evidence found on I-110, law enforcement searched the suspects’ apartments and seized a large amount of drugs and weapons.
