An Aiken County woman was charged Wednesday in connection with a 2018 armed robbery at an ATM.

Destiny Marie Hadden Hallman, 23, is charged with armed robbery and breach of trust with fraudulent intent, according to jail records.

On Dec. 12, 2018, Aiken County Sheriff's Office deputies responded around 7:30 a.m. to an SRP Federal Credit Union ATM on Jefferson Davis Highway where they met with a 16-year-old who claimed to have just been robbed at gunpoint, according to the report.

The victim said he was in the drive-thru ATM, when an unknown male got into the passenger seat of his vehicle, pointed a handgun at him and demanded his wallet.

The male suspect reportedly took the teen's wallet, removed an undetermined amount of cash and gave it back to the victim, telling him, "If you tell anyone, I will kill you. I know where you live now." 

Investigators reported the victim described the suspect as a white male with brown facial hair and wearing a black skull cap.

The victim claimed the suspect got out of his vehicle and into a white Honda Civic being driven by a white female with dark, shoulder-length hair, police said.

Following an investigation, investigators determined the female suspect to be Hallman. The male suspect has not yet been identified.

Hallman was arrested Wednesday and taken to the Aiken County detention center, where she was still being held Thursday afternoon.

Her breach of trust charge stems from a separate incident which was reported to police a few days prior to the armed robbery.

On Dec. 9, 2018, a 24-year-old Graniteville man called police and claimed Hallman was refusing to return his vehicle after he had let her borrow it, according to the report.
