A woman thought to be responsible for the Saturday morning robbery of the Guthrie Exxon Hi Road gas station and for robberies of Dollar General Stores in Robertson County, Tennessee was arrested this week following a vehicle pursuit.
The Cheatham County Sheriff’s Department received information on the whereabouts of 26-year old Megan Pires of Clarksville Sunday night and she was eventually arrested following a pursuit that traveled multiple roadways and included a collision with a cruiser.
She’s charged with the robberies in Tennessee and Guthrie Police Sgt. Dean Blumel says charges will likely be coming related to the weekend robbery at the Hi Road. Pires confessed to WKRN TV that she committed the Robertson County robberies using a pellet gun and Sgt. Blumel says he’ll be traveling to Tennessee to interview her about the Guthrie incident.
At about 1:30 a.m. Saturday, a female placed merchandise on the counter, put her hand in her pocket and said she had a gun. She demanded money out of the register and broke a charity donation jar on the counter and took that money.
Pires tells channel 2 out of Nashville that she’s “disgusted” by her recent behavior and attributes her conduct to an addiction to methamphetamine.
Police say she’s facing new charges related to cocaine found in her car and she’s charged with two counts of assault of a police officer and felony evading.
