JAMES CITY COUNTY, Va. (WAVY) — James City County police have arrested a woman they believe robbed an Exxon store on April 27.

Police responded to a report of a robbery at the Exxon, 4625 Monticello Avenue, around 5:20 p.m. April 27.

A female came into the store, purchased a pack of Marlboro Menthol 72 cigarettes, then demanded all the money from the cash register.

She arrived and left the business in the back seat of a champagne or silver GMC Yukon. The vehicle was last seen crossing Monticello Avenue onto News Road.

On May 5, police were also notified about an attempted robbery that happened around 4:45 p.m. April 27 at 4197 Centerville Road, which is a BP gas station. It appeared to involve the same suspect. She bought some “beverages” and then demanded money from the cash register, but the clerk refused and told the woman to leave.

During the police investigation, residents reached out and gave police that indicated the suspect was 35-year-old Heather Krinks of Newport News.
