||Woman arrested in armed robbery
NEW ALBANY, Miss. (WTVA) — New Albany police are working to identify the woman arrested in an armed robbery in the city Monday morning.
Chief Chris Robertson says officers were called to a home on Butler Street around 8:30 this morning.
A woman there told officers she was robbed a gunpoint by a woman in the yard of her home.
Robertson says Union County deputies stopped the vehicle a short time later and took the suspect into custody.
He says a firearm and cash were found inside the car.
Investigators say the woman was apparently passing through town and went to a local store.
They say she targeted her victim at the store, but followed her back to her home and robbed her with a rifle.
Robertson says the woman identified herself as Alexandria Meadows, 40.
He says she told investigators she was from Arkansas, but the car she was driving had Illinois license plates.
Robertson says the woman also had multiple identification in her possession.
