A North Augusta woman was arrested late Thursday night and charged with armed robbery after she allegedly held up a drugstore in Augusta, according to the Richmond County Sheriff's Office.
Angelica Monique Rouse, 20, of North Augusta, allegedly approached the assistant manager in the front office of the Rite Aid on Walton Way as the store was closing about 11:50 p.m. Thursday, police said.
Rouse, armed with a knife, demanded money and then fled the store after receiving an undisclosed amount of money, police said.
Deputies responding to the incident apprehended Rouse and one of her alleged accomplices, 19-year-old Nicholas Cordell Mason of Central Avenue in Augusta, according to a report.
The two were apprehended on the 500 block of Chafee Avenue, located directly behind the drugstore.
Police said they then learned of a third accomplice, 20-year-old De'Michaels Glover of Shadow Ridge Drive in Augusta. Glover, reportedly an employee of the store, was working at the time of the incident and had conspired to commit the robbery.
All three suspects were detained and booked into the Richmond County jail, each on a charge of robbery.
