Athens, TN (The Weekly Vice)-Angela Evans, a 32-year-old Athens woman was jailed after she allegedly forced her 11-year-old son to rob a finance company and then drove the getaway car.
According to Athens police, a juvenile wearing something over his face approached a World finance company clerk Jan 8, placed a gun to her head and demanded all of the money in the cash register.
The young man fled the scene with $80, jumped into a red Mustang and was driven away by a woman who was later identified as the boy's mother, Angela Evans.
Both suspects were apprehended during a routine traffic stop the next day, as the employee was able to provide investigators with a description of the suspect and the getaway car.
The boy who robbed the store with what turned out to be a pellet gun was only 11 years old and reportedly told investigators that his mother forced him into the robbery to help “pay bills.”
Evans, who is a former employee of World Finance, reportedly tried to time the robbery just prior to the days deposit drop, but apparently arrived just a few minutes late. She was driving the getaway car as well.
Evans was booked into McMinn County Jail and charged with Criminal Responsibility for the Conduct of Another.
Her son, who now resides with his father, will be in court on Monday, facing charges of aggravated robbery.
