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."

Roy Exum: Our Double Travesties

Back when we were kids the old guys taught us how to throw a one-two punch. It’s pretty impressive if you do it right, which is to jab your left fist into the thug’s face and then, as though it was a symphony, complete the combination as you deliver a powerful right cross to the same nose. If the thug has a gun, it doesn’t work as well. But, boy, did our community ever get clobbered ... (click for more)
