Three from Orange, One from Houston arrested for Louisiana armed robbery

Three men from Orange and one from Houston have been arrested following an armed robbery in Louisiana.

A spokesperson with the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office said around 11 p.m. Sunday deputies were called to a casino on Highway 109 South in Vinton.   Two people said they were sitting inside their car in the parking lot of the casino when two men, later identified as Darius M. Mikel, 19, Houston, and Jacoven D. Levi, 19, of Orange, walked up.  One had a handgun and they demanded money.

The spokesperson said Mikel and Levi took the victim's cell phones and wallets and fled.

A description of the robbers was broadcast over Sheriff's Office dispatch.  Moments later, deputies found Mikel and Levi and the car they fled in traveling westbound on I-10 near the Louisiana/Texas state line.  The two were arrested without incident.

Deputies recovered the victim's stolen cell phone and wallets, as well as a handgun from inside the car.

Deputies also arrested passengers Donald F. Griffin-Gosey, 19, and Darrius J. Arnold, 22, both of Orange.  All were booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center.  

Levi is charged with armed robbery with a handgun; and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.  Mikel, Griffin-Gosey, and Arnold are all charged with principle to armed robbery with a handgun.

All of their bonds are still pending.

CPSO Cpl. Mark Rosteet was the arresting deputy on this case.
