Man and Woman Arrested In Union County Robbery

handcuffsA man and a woman were arrested for robbing of a man on Dec. 20 in Union County.

The robbery happened in Indian Trail near the Crismark subdivision.

Janet Ward Nance, 40, is charged with both conspiracy to engage in robbery with a dangerous weapon and robbery with a dangerous weapon. She received multiple warrants of probation violation and a misdemeanor larceny charge, which was unrelated to this case. Her bail is $65,500.

31-year-old Basil Brandon Blake received the charge of assault with a deadly weapon delivering major bodily harm, robbery with a dangerous weapon and conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon. He has been jailed on $50,000 bail.

The two suspects had provided the victim of the robbery with a ride to the Crismark subdivision saying they were going to a party, the victim told investigators.

But after arriving to the area, one of the suspects pulled out a gun in the vehicle and ordered the victim to hand over their phone and money. Sheriff Eddie Cathey said the suspects had pistol-whipped the victim and abandoned them at the side of the road.

Both of the accused are to appear in court on Feb. 3.
