On Saturday, September 12, deputies were dispatched to the Burger King on Greenwell Springs Rd. in reference to an armed robbery. While questioning the victim, Joshua Rogers, who is an employee of Burger King, detectives suspected his story of the events that occurred didn’t seem right. He advised that while he was taking out garbage, a Hispanic male put a gun to him and forced him back inside where he robbed him of the money in the cash register and safe. During further questioning, Rogers admitted that he and two other subjects set up the robbery and that it was a fake robbery. Detectives upon further investigation identified the two subjects as Sherman Edwards and Darrell Jeansonne. All three subjects were charged with armed robbery, and Edwards was additionally charged with resisting an officer and had a simple burglary warrant from the Baton Rouge Police Department.
