GREENVILLE, Wis., (WFRV) – A 42-year-old Greenville woman was arrested Wednesday for attempting to rob a local Mcdonald’s using a BB gun earlier in the week.
According to the Outagamie County Sheriff’s Office, on Nov. 16, deputies responded to a report of an attempted armed robbery at the McDonald’s located at W6308 Wally Way in the Village of Greenville.
Authorities say that during the attempted robbery, the suspect, now identified as 42-year-old Melissa Mann, drove up to the drive-through window and threatened an employee with a “gun”, which authorities later discovered was actually a CO2-powered BB gun.
No one was harmed during this incident.
Mann then fled the scene in a 2007 to 2013 silver Nissan Rogue prompting deputies to launch an investigation.
One day later, on Nov. 17, investigators reportedly developed leads from prior investigations which lead them to identify and find Mann.
Mann was then taken into custody where she admitted to committing the attempted robbery. Deputies confirmed that a search warrant was conducted on Mann’s residence, which was within a half-mile of the scene of the crime scene, and the BB gun was located.
