Two Port Arthur men indicted in Groves robberies


Two Port Arthur men remain held in the Jefferson County Jail  on $1 million bond each after they were indicted Thursday by a Jefferson County Grand jury.

Ernest Wilson and Odis Sparks are accused of robbing two Groves convenience stores within minutes of each other last month.

Authorities say one of the men would hold a gun on the clerk and customers while the other would take cash from the register and customers before fleeing the business. Police arrested the two after a brief chase.

Each have been indicted on four counts of aggravated robbery.
