Money taken from a gas station has resulted in felony charges for Ashleigh Nichole Melson.
According to the report, on April 23, a man and woman entered and exited the Pine Street Roadrunner Shell, formerly known as Stuckey’s, for a length of time. The store clerk and several witnesses attested to the allegation.
Although a car had been parked, the male moved it into what was called in the case’s affidavit as a “strategic location to allow for a quick exit.”
After moving the vehicle, Melson ran and grabbed a Clark County Humane Society donation box containing money and fled from the store. The incident was captured by a video surveillance.
The clerk chased after Melson and nearly retrieved the donation box. In response, Melson caused the clerk to sustain two small cuts on their hand. The exact cause for the cuts was not specified.
The vehicle fled but was pursued by a customer, who later disclosed to authorities the make and model and license plate number.
Although the exact amount of money taken was unknown, it was said to be half full of change and several one and five dollar bills.
Melson, a Lamar resident, had been charged with robbery and misdemeanor theft of property.
