RAYNHAM, Mass. (WPRI) — An East Wareham woman was arrested after she allegedly robbed a convenience store while armed with a hypodermic needle, Raynham police reported.

Ashley Demers, 34, was charged with armed robbery.

Police said they responded around 6 p.m. Monday to a reported robbery at the Seasons Corner Market on New State Highway in Raynham.

Employees gave police a description of the suspect and said she had brandished a needle which she claimed was infected with AIDS. She then fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Police were also given the suspect’s license plate number. A short time later, Massachusetts State Police said the vehicle was connected to a similar robbery in New Bedford, according to Raynham police.

State police located and stopped the vehicle in Marion after a brief pursuit, and Demers was taken into custody.
