Police: Robbery Suspect Had Checklist of Targets in Pocket
October 18, 2010
PAWTUCKET, R.I. (AP) — Police in Rhode Island trying to stop a string of robberies got a big break when they found a key piece of evidence — an alleged robber’s checklist of targets.
Jimmy Honeycutt and his girlfriend Stephanie McDole were arrested Wednesday after Pawtucket police found torn pages from a phone book in Honeycutt’s pocket. Asterisks were marked next to some of the businesses that were robbed this month.
Detectives pulled over the pair because their car matched the description of a vehicle wanted in connection with a robbery at an Attleboro Getty gas station.
Twenty-six-year-old Honeycutt is charged with five counts of first-degree robbery. Twenty-seven-year-old McDole is charged with two counts of first-degree robbery.
It was unclear if either had hired an attorney.
