Headland Woman Arrested In Local Store Robbery

Headland Police arrested a knife-wielding woman for armed robbery.

Police Chief Mark Jones identifies the suspect as 30-year-old Christina Dawn Matthews of Headland.

She was picked-up less than two-hours after the crime was committed.

Matthews is charged with robbing the Dollar General store on Mitchell Street in Headland Sunday afternoon.

A woman trying to conceal her identify threatened to pull a weapon on employees unless they handed over money.

The suspect got away with about $200 in cash.

She was last seen headed south on Highway 431 in a red Nissan. Police later spotted the vehicle and pulled Matthews over.

Chief Jones says a large knife was found in her purse.

Matthews was booked in the Henry County Jail on $20,000 bond.
