Store Employee Arrested Following Greenwood Country Store Robbery

A second arrest has been made in the Greenwood Country Store robbery.      

It turns out that the woman that was arrested has ties to the store.

The Midland County Sheriff's Office says the woman was the store clerk that was held at gunpoint.

Tami Bowman, 51, is facing charges of aggravated robbery.

She's accused of working with the suspect to plan out the robbery.

The arrest report says James Hardee went into the Greenwood Country Store right before it opened.

He burst through, pointed a gun to the clerk's head, demanded some cash and ran off.

The sheriff's office says bowman and Hardee were texting to each other to plan on how certain things were to be done.

That included injuries bowman needed to sustain to make it appear real.

The report says text messages show the main plan was to sue the store for bowman's injuries and that Bowman and Hardee would split the settlement between them.

The sheriff's office says the two actually live down the street from each other as well.
