Madison County Sheriff Ben Stewart reports that on Saturday, Jan. 4, deputies of the Madison County Sheriff’s Office responded to the Fast Track convenience store located at 13689 West US Highway 90 in Greenville, regarding an armed robbery that had just taken place.
The offenders were described as a male and two females. While en-route, deputies received a detailed description of the offenders including the get-away vehicle and tag number.
Upon arrival, deputies secured the scene and began to process evidence. The store clerk informed deputies that the male subject entered the store and walked to the bathroom then exited the store.
A short time later, the two females entered the store and both walked to the bathroom. After exiting the bathroom the two females walked to the beer cooler, retrieved a four pack of beer and walked up to the cash register to pay for the beer.
As one of the females began to pay for the beer, the second female brandished a semi-automatic handgun and pointed it at the clerk and stated, “Give me all you have.”
At that point a customer entered the store unaware that a robbery was taking place. The gun was concealed and both females walked back to the beer cooler and retrieved a 24-pack of beer. The clerk told the customer to call 911.
Both females exited the store only taking the beer.
Investigators of the Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigative Division (CID) responded and assumed control of the investigation. Investigators were able to identify two of the offenders and with assistance from the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office arrested both in Jefferson County. The arrest of the third suspect is forthcoming.
Arrested were Vincent Wendell Chambers, 46, and Liza Susie Hawkins, 29. They were charged with armed robbery, possession of a firearm by a felon and improper exhibition of a weapon.
