Two women are in jail after being accused of trying to rob a woman in the parking lot of the Dublin Walmart, according to Maj. Greg Dominy of the Dublin Police Department.
Dominy says a 65-year-old woman told police that she was getting back to her car after returning her buggy and saw a woman sitting in the passenger seat of her car with a long gun who told her to ‘get in.’
She ran away for help and the woman in the passenger seat, identified as 27-year-old Zaleika Jatrice Jiles of Wrightsville, got into a burgundy SUV and drove off.
East Dublin Police spotted the vehicle, driven by 33-year-old Chantell Montaneice Hooks of East Dublin, and found a sawed-off rifle inside.
The car was positively identified and the two women were arrested.
Jiles is charged with aggravated assault, armed robbery and possession of a sawed-off firearm. Hooks is charged with aggravated assault and armed robbery.
The 65-year-old woman did not report any injuries.
