Lafayette crime blotter for Jan. 16, 2014

An Opelousas man suspected of robbing a truck stop casino in December was booked Wednesday as police continued to search for the getaway driver, officials said.

Dudley Melancon, 25, 1834 Prayer House Road, Opelousas, was booked into the St. Landry Parish Jail on one count of principal to first-degree robbery.

His bail was set at $25,000, said Capt. Megan Vizena, St. Landry Parish Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman.

The robbery occurred Dec. 30 at the 167 Truck Stop and Gator Gold Casino.

Vizena said witnesses saw a man walk into the truck stop, hand a cashier a note demanding money then leave the building with an undisclosed amount of cash before jumping into the backseat of a 2013 Chevrolet Silverado waiting outside.

Officials issued a warrant for Melancon after an investigation.
