Police said Latham was the getaway driver and she had been at large until her arrest. They said surveillance photos helped identify the suspects.

On Tuesday, Nov. 8 about 4:30 p.m. the manager of Hibbetts Sports said a black female came in and began gathering high-priced Nike clothing near the entrance.

The manager said the woman ran out an exit into a waiting car driven by a white female with blond hair.

She said the black female again warned her to get back because she had a weapon, then they drove off.

Police soon connected this robbery with one on Oct. 24 at Academy Sports with the suspect and car matching the descriptions and video.

In that robbery, the manager said a black female was walking around carrying about 10 jackets, each valued at more than $100.

When the woman walked past the registers to the door, the manager said she asked the woman to return and pay for the items and the woman pushed past her, scratching the manager’s arms in the process.

Another employee attempted to take the jackets away from the woman but she also pushed past him and he followed her out and tried to grab them again at which point the manager told him to let her go.

They said the woman dropped one jacket, picked it up and when the employee approached, she hit him in the face with an open hand.
