Description: A Fort Pierce woman is being held in the Martin County jail today after she allegedly admitted that she is the woman who lost her sandals after robbing a Chevron gas station in Atlantis earlier this week.
Heather Kelly, 25, faces a charge of robbery after she was seen on video surveillance early Monday morning crawling through a counter window at the gas station and then removing large bills from the cash register. The surveillance video shows the woman losing her shoes while engaging in a scuffle with the gas station clerk.
A Florida Highway Patrol trooper arrested Kelly on Tuesday. She was driving north on Interstate 95 in the Palm City area when the trooper stopped her for speeding, according to a detective with Atlantis Police.
The trooper arrested her on an outstanding warrant in another county in Florida. Details regarding that warrant were not immediately available.
Kelly then allegedly admitted to a detective with Atlantis Police that she was the woman who robbed the Chevron station.
