A Rite Aid employee has been arrested after police said he was involved in plans to rob the business.

Richmond County sheriff’s deputies were called to the store at 1505 Walton Way around 11:50 p.m. Thursday for reports of an armed robbery. According to a news release, the assistant manager was preparing to close when she was approached in her office by a person with a knife who demanded cash.

Police apprehended Anjelica Monigue Rouse, 20, of Castelina Drive in North Augusta, and Nicholas Cordell Mason, 19, of Central Avenue behind the business on the 500 block of Chafee Avenue.

Police later learned De’Michaels Glover, 20, of Sha­dow Ridge Drive, had conspired to commit the robbery, the report said. Glover was working at the store at the time of the robbery.

All three were booked into the Richmond County jail on armed robbery charges.

I'm all for CW's but since this was an inside job...

chances are any weapon known to be on site would have been disabled or removed prior to the attempt.

Anyone known to be carrying would have caused the perps to schedule around that individual.

In short, the law wouldn't have helped in this particular case....

Otherwise, I agree with you completely.

SeenIt, haha. But no one has to know who is carrying a gun. I certainly wouldn't broadcast it.

You carry and work in a small business...

the word will get out over time.... One person finds out, then everyone knows.

With a few exceptions...
