A 19-year-old female has admitted her role in an armed robbery at the Kangaroo gas station on East Brained Road.

Keoshia Starling, of 1507 Hickory Valley Road, is facing a charge of aggravated robbery.

Julian Pasley, 18, of 701 N. Germantown Road, was also taken into custody for aggravated robbery.

In the incident last Thursday, the manager said she and a co-worker were in the rear room counting money when they were robbed by three armed suspects.

She said one of the robbers entered the rear room and pointed a long-barrel revolver at them, while demanding money.

The other two remained in the food area, while the first robber took the money deposits along with money from the cash register.

All three then fled on foot toward a nearby Subway restaurant.

Just over an hour later, Ms. Starling, who is the sister of the 19-year-old co-worker who was robbed, called police and reported her vehicle stolen from her residence.

Police took her in for questioning, and she gave a detailed confession.

She said she discussed robbing the Kangaroo along with Pasley, a juvenile and an unknown person.

Ms. Starling said she drove the trio to the gas station and she parked in the Subway parking lot. She said they exited their vehicle armed with firearms and carried out the holdup.

The co-worker said she recognized one of the robbers on the Kangaroo surveillance video as a person she knows as "Lil Man." She later identified Pasley as "Lil Man."

You’re Right With Lamar

One of Tennessee’s favorite sons, Davy Crockett, coined an oft-used phrase:  “Be always sure you’re right, then go ahead.” Being sure is quite important, but may be difficult in this election cycle. The Democratic nominee campaigning against Lamar Alexander is a man whose radio ads call for “change,” “fair” taxes and more jobs.  Sounds good, huh?   ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Troubling Jameis Winston
