On, December 5, 2020, the St. Landry Parish Sheriff’s Office received a complaint in regards to an armed robbery at the Lucky’s 190 Truck Stop in Opelousas, La.

It was determined that the male suspect wearing a blue sweatshirt with grey trim around the neck area, green camouflage pants, brown cap and grey tennis shoes entered the store with a firearm and demanded money from an employee. When the suspect obtained cash, he fled the business.

Investigators later obtained information that the suspect allegedly involved in another armed robbery was Landon Dwayne Jimmerson, who sustained a self-inflicted gunshot wound in the leg while fleeing the business.

When questioned by detectives, Landon Jimmerson stated that he did sustain a gunshot wound in his leg but the injury was received during a domestic dispute in another parish. However, during the interview, detectives observed that Landon Jimmerson was wearing the exact identical clothing as the suspect in the video footage from the Lucky’s 190 Truck Stop robbery, with the exception of the brown cap.

On April 30, 2021, Landon Dwayne Jimmerson was booked at the St. Landry Parish Jail and charged with armed robbery. His bond has been set at $150,000.
