A woman already charged in a Clay County murder in September is back in jail after Wichita Falls police say she was involved in two armed robberies this week.
33-year-old Trinity Elizabeth Noland was arrested yesterday after police say she went into the Dollar General on Seymour Highway and asked the clerk to call 911.
Authorities say Noland originally told officers that she had been kidnapped and held against her will.
Police located 27-year-old Zachary Trumble in the parking lot and arrested him after finding a gun in his vehicle with the serial number scratched off.
He is charged with unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon and tampering with id numbers.
When interviewed by police they say Trumble said he and Noland were involved in two robberies, one at Fas Pac on Central Freeway yesterday morning and another at the Missile Club on Monday and that in both incidents he went inside, pointed a gun at an employee’s head and demanded money.
He said that Noland waited in the getaway car until he came out of the store and she drove off.
According to Trumble he and Noland came up with a fake cover story in case they needed it about how Noland was held against her will and that he would take the fall for the crimes.
Trumble said he was going to continue with this plan until Noland gave him up.
Police say Noland first denied any involvement with the robberies but after more questioning she admitted that she was there. Investigators say she also later told them that the kidnapping story was made up.
She’s charged with two counts of aggravated robbery and drug charges. Her bonds total more than $300-thousand dollars.
Noland was already out on $100,000 bond after being charged with the first homicide in Henrietta in more than a decade Back in September, Clay County sheriff’s deputies say Noland shot and killed a man she claimed was attacking two other people.
She posted bond a few days later.
