On December 13, 2017, at approximately 9:13 PM, the victim was in the parking lot of Dollar General, located in Charlotte Hall, when she was approached by a white female.  The female suspect then attempted to take the victim’s purse; after a brief struggle the suspect was able to obtain the purse and fled on foot. The victim was transported from the scene to MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital for routine medical observation.  The suspect was last observed fleeing the area and running toward Mohawk Drive, in Charlotte Hall. The suspect was described as a white female in her 20’s, with blonde hair, approximately 5’0”-5’2” in height, and at the time of this incident was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, with a puffy black jacket over the sweatshirt, and black pants/leggings.

Through further investigation by Corporal Kerby, two suspects were developed; Karen Anne Granville, age 28, and Jessy James Snead age 38, both from Mechanicsville. It was determined Granville had committed the robbery, while Snead acted as the getaway driver.  On December 27, 2017, Cpl. Kerby located both suspects and placed them under arrest.  Granville was charged with Robbery, Assault 2nd Degree, and Theft.  Snead was charged with Robbery, Assault 2nd Degree, Theft, and Access after Statute (Accessory after the Fact to a Felony).
