A 30-year-old Friendship woman made her initial court appearance Monday, Dec. 27 on a charge she was involved in the gunpoint robbery of a Washington businessman.

Jennica E. Miller is charged with Class A robbery in connection to the July 25, 2021 robbery in Washington.

According to an affidavit filed July 28 in the Knox County court, the Knox County Sheriff’s Office received a report from a man in Washington, who runs a used car business, had been robbed at gunpoint. The man reported a man named Elmo Williams and Miller were in his home on July 25 and robbed him, according to the police report filed in court.

The victim of the robbery had repossessed, for lack of payments, a car he had sold to Williams, according to the affidavit. Williams was there trying to convince the victim to buy back the vehicle, but he refused because the car had been damaged. The victim told police he went out of the room and when he returned, Williams had the victim’s handgun and demanded money. The victim turned over $280 in cash he had on him, according to the affidavit.

Williams then repeatedly ordered the victim to open a safe or he would be shot but the victim refused, according to the affidavit.

Williams and Miller then left the victim’s house. Miller had previously lived in a trailer on the victim’s property and was familiar with where the victim kept his handgun, according to the affidavit.

The Sheriff’s office obtained arrest warrants on July 28. Miller was apprehended on Nov. 4 and released on $500 unsecured bail. She made her initial appearance in court on Dec. 27.

Williams, from New York, has not been apprehended. Other than being referenced in the affidavit in Miller’s case, the court has no publicly available documents on Williams. Generally, complaints and arrest warrants are not released until a suspect has been apprehended.
