SHERIFF'S OFFICE ARRESTS WOMAN FOR ARMED ROBBERY

On March 2,  Sabrina Magee, 43, a resident of Upper Sunlight Road in Tylertown, was arrested for the armed robbery of a business on Highway 21 north of Bogalusa.  According to witness testimony and video footage, Magee entered the business and gave the cashier a note stating she had a gun and wanted money.  The cashier retreated and Magee fled, traveling back to Mississippi.  Although she did not get any money, she did take some items from the store without paying for them.

Washington Parish Sheriff's Office deputies and detectives arrived at the business, reviewed the video footage, and identified the vehicle in which Magee was traveling.  The vehicle was traced to an address in Angie and it was determined the driver had no involvement with or knowledge of Magee's actions inside the business.  The driver did identify a location in Walthall County where he had driven Magee.

Washington Parish detectives enlisted the help of the Walthall County Sheriff's Office.  Washington Parish Detective Damon Mitchell accompanied Walthall deputies who were able to apprehend Magee after finding her hiding in a closet at the residence.  After being placed in a Walthall Sheriff's vehicle, Magee was able to escape and flee into nearby woods before being apprehended and transported to the Walthall County Jail and then transferred to the Washington Parish Jail.

Sheriff Seal stated, "It is always good when a robber is quickly caught and no one is injured, either during the robbery or the capture.  My thanks to Sheriff Breland and his officers in Walthall County who are always ready and willing to assist us when needed."
