Woman arrested for role in robbery

Jan. 24, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

HUNTINGTON -- A local woman was arrested Tuesday for her role in the robbery of a gaming parlor last month.

Angel Marie Baldwin, 25, was charged with felony first degree robbery in connection with an armed robbery on Dec. 17 at R.V.A. #119 in the 800 block of Adams Avenue.

James Maynard, 25, was arrested last month for his role in that robbery and a second robbery on Dec. 20.

In the criminal complaint filed in Cabell County Magistrate Court, the arresting officer said that a false emergency was reported to Cabell County 911 dispatchers "just prior to the robbery."

A female reported a violent home invasion had occurred, and the incident later was proven to be false, the officer said in the complaint.

The officer said in the complaint that Maynard provided a confession to the robbery and that Baldwin had made the call. Officers were able to trace the phone number used in the call to a phone in Baldwin's possession, the officer said.

The complaint indicated Baldwin admitted the emergency was false, and it was intended to divert officers away from the area in which the robbery was taking place.

Baldwin remains incarcerated at the Western Regional Jail on a $100,000 bond.
