Last Halloween, a Circle K store in Winter Springs, Florida reported that they had been the victim of an armed robbery.
Since the store has surveillance equipment, the event was recorded on video, and a person can be seen on the footage as they entered the store and handed a piece of paper to the employee at the register. The person, whose face was concealed by a mask, additionally appeared to be holding a gun during the alleged robbery.
After the money was given to the armed suspect, they left the establishment returned to an SUV parked outside.
The surveillance cameras also caught images of the automobile in which the suspect appeared to arrive, holding a total of four people.
It was later purported that the driver was 37-year-old Amanda Chere Meador, the mother of the 15-year-old boy they believed robbed the store.
When the suspect gave the note to the clerk he reportedly was not using anything to cover his hands. The authorities reported that they were able to use two fingerprints left behind to identify someone who, according to the police report, “matches the physical characteristics” of the young man that they believed was the offender.
On January 14, the authorities spoke with Meador and another person that was allegedly in the vehicle on the night of the robbery, and they surmised that she was responsible for the incident since she allegedly allowed and assisted her son in performing such a dangerous act.
Meador has been charged with one count of felony armed robbery, and one count of felony child neglect without great bodily harm, for the accusations against her.
