Merriam Police say a 33-year-old woman has been arrested following the armed robbery of a Marshall's department store around 7 p.m. Tuesday.

Amanda Nicole Thompson was apprehended by the Johnson County Sheriff's Office around 3 p.m. Wednesday on an aggravated robbery warrant. Merriam Police confirm that the warrant stems from Tuesday's robbery in their city.

The store is located in the 5800 block of Antioch.

Police allege that Thompson handed the cashier a note which indicated she was armed with a gun and demanded money.

County Jail records show that Thompson has an address in Independence, Missouri. She was booked into the Johnson County Jail charged with aggravated robbery. She is being held on a $100,000 bond.

More information on the Merriam armed robbery, and a similar robbery at a Shawnee business can be found in our earlier report (LINK). Shawnee Police have not said whether or not the same suspect was involved in their case, only saying that they continue to investigate.
