We have more news on the First Cash robbery that took place in Murfreesboro on December 17th. You may recall the clerk at the business on Memorial Boulevard claimed to have been robbed and police later arrested 24-year old Sarah Jamison and accused her of making up the whole story. A police report filed on the day of the robbery noted:
“The victim told me (Officer Burubeltz) that she had just opened the business and was standing behind the counter when a man entered the business and approached the counter. The suspect told the victim to put her hands in the air and that he had a gun and wanted all of the money.”
Jamison then described the suspect to officers as being a black male standing 6 foot 2. The reported robber however was not black at all… It was later determined that her white boyfriend conspired with her in the story of the hold-up. The boyfriend was arrested just before Christmas this week and charged in connection with the crime that occurred on the 17th. Brandon Stafford, age 28, is now behind bars at the Rutherford County Adult Detention Center. He will be in court in the near future.
More News on the Crime:
On the day of the make believe hold-up, Murfreesboro Police called in a tracking K-9 and a team of officers to search the area for a possible suspect. Middle Tennessee Christian School, which is 100-feet to the right of First Cash, was placed on Code Yellow lockdown. Of course a culprit was never located.
The following day, Murfreesboro Police Sgt. Kyle Evans confirmed that an investigation into the robbery led to the arrest of Jamison.
Sgt. Evans told WGNS in an email:
“After interviewing witnesses and examining the physical evidence the First Cash employee that reported the robbery, Sarah M. Jamison, was arrested and charged with Filing a False Report, Conspiracy to Commit Theft $1,000-$10,000 and Theft $1,000-$10,000. Warrants were also obtained for Jamison’s boyfriend, Brandon Stafford, for Conspiracy to File a False Report and Theft $1,000-$10,000. He is currently on the run from law enforcement.”
Stafford has since been arrested.
