An Elkhart woman is admitting her involvement in one of several hold-ups earlier this year on the city’s north side.
That’s according to our reporting partners at the Elkhart Truth.
Yesterday in court, Abigail Pifer, 20, pleaded guilty to armed robbery and agreed to a sentence fo six years in prison and six years probation.
Her official sentencing hearing is scheduled for September 5.
Police arrested both Pifer and her co-defendant Nicholas Chaplin, 24, for their roles in a robbery at Low Bob’s Discount Tobacco store along State Road 19 in late January.
Employees told investigators that two men and a woman got away with some cash.
Pifer and Chaplin were arrested a week after the crime, when officers found evidence of the pair’s involvement inside their vehicle during a traffic stop.
This incident is just one of 11 hold-ups that occurred in the area between January 25 and February 28.
Jacob Wing, 18, Timothy Cramer, 23, Jacob Estep,23, and Sergio Rocha, 26, are also accused in the string of robberies.
Their cases are still pending in circuit court.
