NATCHITOCHES, La. (KALB News Channel 5) - Five Natchitoches residents  have been arrested in connection with a staged home invasion, and armed robbery near Natchitoches according to Natchitoches Parish Sheriff Victor Jones Jr.

According to NPSO, on Thursday evening, January 16th, at approximately 8:40pm, NPSO Deputies responded to a 911 call of   a reported home invasion/armed robbery in the 200 block of Cedar Grove Drive, in the Cedar Grove Sub-Division, south of Natchitoches.

The female caller, reported that 2 masked males forcibly entered her residence,  armed with handguns, robbing her and three friends at gunpoint of less than one-hundred dollars cash, cell phones, a purse,  Pioneer Stereo and equipment,  in a vehicle parked outside the residence.

Deputies say two male victims at the residence, reported they were told by the suspects to lay on the floor, while they were kicked and pistol whipped by the suspects.

It was also reported that children were in the residence.

NPSO Detectives and Natchitoches EMS Paramedics responded to the scene.

Deputies began an extensive search of the area, based on the information obtained from the victims concerning the robbery.

During the investigation, deputies assigned to the patrol division and detectives began interviewing all of the victims.

During those interviews, deputies began developing conflicting stories in the investigation.

Deputies then learned the home invasion/armed robbery had been planned and conspired by several individuals.

As a result, deputies began identifying multiple suspects involved in the case according to Sheriff Jones.

Throughout the night, deputies continued the investigation, obtaining sufficient evidence and probable cause to arrest the following individuals:
