Woman Accused Of Robbing Walmart Found In Georgia Jail

POINCIANA, Fla. (AP) — A woman accused of robbing a central Florida Walmart was located in a Georgia jail after the Osceola County Sheriff’s office released a photo to the public.

Angela Nichelle Alexander is being charged with attempted armed robbery with a firearm and aggravated assault. She will be extradited to Osceola County.

Officers responded to a Poinciana Walmart on June 6 after an employee said she was approached by a female wearing a Walmart uniform and name tag. The female revealed a gun and fled scene after the employee screamed.

Alexander is in Clayton County Jail in Georgia for a similar crime days after the Poinciana Walmart incident was reported. A Georgia police officer recognized the released photo and contacted the sheriff’s office. Detectives interviewed Alexander in Georgia on Friday.
