Kraus said Pitre entered the Valero gas station on La. 171.

“He demanded money from the clerk and threatened her life with a gun if she did not cooperate,” Kraus said Thursday in a news release. “Pitre left the store when two customers entered. He was arrested a short time later by Corporal Romero and Officer Young.”
