A Dalton woman was arrested this week on charges that she tried to rob a convenience store with a stun gun.
According to a Whitfield County Sheriff's Office incident report, 39-year-old Lindsey Ann Dean placed a bag of M&Ms and a Diet Coke on the counter of the Mapco Convenience Store at 2112 Cleveland Highway around 11 p.m. on Friday. When the clerk, Jacob Milton Burk, turned away, Dean allegedly walked up behind him and discharged a pink stun gun into the lower right side of his back.
"Empty your drawer," she allegedly said.
Instead, Burk grabbed a broom, lifted it above his head and chased Dean out of the store.
"I'm sorry," she said, according to the report. "Please don't hurt me."
Dean dropped a $5 bill on her way out the door. An investigator identified her based on video evidence, a description of her vehicle and phone records, Whitfield County Capt. Paul Woods said.
The sheriff's office arrested her at her apartment on Horseshoe Way in Dalton on Tuesday. The department charged her with armed robbery and simple assault.
