Surveillance cameras captured the heavy-set, middle-aged woman walking into the store around 6:44 a.m. She headed over to the cashier, pointed a handgun at him, handed him a bag and demanded money from the register.

BSO officials said she’s also responsible for robbing a Dollar Tree store on August 17th.

She was apprehended by a BSO sergeant on Sunday who spotted her in the older model, white SUV seen in surveillance video at the scene of the Walgreen’s robbery.

She had no criminal history before the Sunday morning arrest.
