An Elkins woman was arrested after attempting to rob a woman Thursday.
Logan Biller, 28, of Elkins, was arrested and charged with second degree or attempted robbery.
The victim was getting into her car by an alley near Graham Street in Elkins when she noticed a dark blue Subaru pulling into a neighbor’s parking spot. When the victim went to leave, Biller, who was described as a white, skinny female in a ski mask and ball cap, walked up to the car window and demanded her purse, according to Elkins Police.
The victim told police that Biller acted like she had a weapon hidden. The victim then got out of her car, began yelling at Biller and told her to get back in her vehicle.
According to police, Biller removed the mask and said it was only a prank that her son put her up to. The victim began asking Biller what her son looked like and for his age, but she would not answer.
The victim continued yelling at Biller as she drove away and was able to get a license plate number. The owner of the vehicle was known by police, and the owner’s girlfriend, Biller, matched the description given by the victim. After being shown a mug shot of Biller, the victim confirmed that it was the person who attempted to rob her.
According to police, the same Subaru Legacy was seen at an attempted robbery at the Iron Road Inn on the Beverly Five Lane. City sanitation workers also said that a woman with the same vehicle and physical description was seen taking items from a residence near Center Street and Davis Street. The workers claimed that she was not concerned about the alley being blocked but continued to fill her car with bags as the workers went around her.
Biller is currently in the Tygart Valley Regional Jail and has bail set at $25,000.
