ROBERT, LA – January 20, 2016 – Misdemeanor shoplifting leads to Felony Meth arrest. On January 19, 2016, Richard Stewart Sr. (DOB 3.14.71) and Jamie Crayton (DOB 11.8.85) entered the Dollar General Store in Robert and proceeded to purchase and also steal precursor materials for the manufacturing of methamphetamines.
