Couple arrested for robbing stores across U.S.

September 9, 2002

Pelham - A Virginia couple is arrested for robbing stores across the nation, including one here in South Georgia.

The couple robbed the Amoco station in Pelham in April 2001. The woman, now identified as Alice Askew distracted the clerk while Gregory Tropea stole cash out of the office.

Pelham investigators say the couple traveled around the US and spent at least eight million dollars in securities transactions.

They were arrested in Canada and face charges across the nation.
