Sophi P. Cakes Robbed; Lafayette Police Investigate
Sophi P. Cakes owner Jennifer Melancon tells KPEL that her store was robbed early this morning.
Melancon says that no one was injured, but the thief came into the store and made away with an undisclosed amount of cash.
The owner says before the store opened, a morning-shift employee noticed an intruder enter the building. The employee was able to hide and call police.
Melancon says Lafayette Police were "quick to respond, and they did a very thorough job of investigating what happened."
Sophi P. Cakes will be closed today, but Melancon says the business will be open and ready for customers again on Tuesday.
Anyone with information about the crime is urged to call Lafayette Police or Lafayette Crime Stoppers at 232-TIPS.
