Covington police investigate armed robbery of pizza restaurant

COVINGTON, La. - Covington police are investigating the armed robbery of a pizza delivery company early Monday morning.

The robbery happened an about 1 a.m. on Collins Boulevard. Investigators said two men waited for the staff to leave the closed business and robbed them at gunpoint. Both men were armed with silver, semi-automatic handguns equipped with laser sights. After taking a small amount of money, the suspects fled on foot.

Covington police contacted the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office and asked for a K-9 unit to be dispatched. Covington officers and sheriff's deputies then tracked the suspects, but soon lost the scent, leading officers to believe the suspects got into a vehicle and fled the area.

The suspects are described as white males wearing ski masks, hooded sweatshirts and gloves.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call the Covington Police Department at (985) 892-8500, or Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
