LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -
A Calcasieu Parish District Court jury has found David Billy Parker Jr. guilty of two armed robberies in 2015.
On November 15, 2015, Parker Jr. entered America's Best Suites on Lake Shore Drive and brandished a revolver at a hotel clerk. He demanded money from a safe and a cash drawer; fled the scene with several hundred dollars.
Two days later, Parker Jr. robbed the PayDay Loan Service on Prien Lake Road at gunpoint. He left the scene with more than $1,600, but was also caught on surveillance video by a nearby business.
Parker Jr. was later recognized in the tape by law enforcement officers, which led to a positive identification during a photographic lineup.
Parker Jr. is guilty of two counts of armed robbery with a firearm and two counts of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
