Larose Man Arrested in Convenience Store Robbery

Larose Man Arrested in Convenience Store Robbery

A Larose man has been arrested for robbing a convenience store last week. Deputies arrested Blake Hernandez, 24, on Friday on an outstanding warrant for simple robbery.

On the morning of Wednesday, June 10, deputies responded to a convenience store on East Main Street in Larose in reference to a burglary. Deputies learned a male subject had entered the store to pay for fuel, and when the cashier opened the cash register drawer, the man stole a stack of $20 bills from register. The man then ran out of the store and drove away in a gold car.

Through video surveillance, deputies were able to identify the subject as Blake Hernandez, and they confirmed a gold car was registered in Hernandez's name. Deputies attempted to locate Hernandez, but they were unable to do so at that time, and so, they obtained a warrant for his arrest.

On Friday, June 12, deputies made contact with Hernandez and placed him under arrest per the warrant. He was transported to the Lafourche Parish Detention Center where he was booked with simple robbery.
He is currently being held in lieu of $50,000 bond as set by Judge Walter I. Lanier III.
