A. Napier, 34 of Glenwood, has been arrested in connection with
the attempted robbery at G.A. Triplett and Son Pharmacy at Osgood
on May 9.
On Friday, September 30 around 5:15 p.m. detectives from the
Indiana State Police Post at Versailles took Napier into custody
after a warrant was issued for her arrest out of the Ripley
County Circuit Court that same day. The warrant was the result
of a five month investigation into the attempted robbery at
the Osgood pharmacy.
In the attempted robbery that occurred on May 9 David E. Ison,
46, of Glenwood, allegedly attempted to rob the pharmacy and
displayed a handgun. The pharmacist and Ison got into a scuffle
and Ison fled the scene.
However, he left some vital evidence behind - his DNA. This
was collected by crime scene technicians from the Indiana State
Police Post at Versailles. The DNA has been analyzed by the
Indiana State Police Laboratory and a positive identification
of Ison was made.
Police say during the investigation concerning the attempted
robbery, it was determined that Amanda A. Napier, was with Ison
during the crime. They say she allegedly aided Ison during the
attempt to rob the pharmacy.
Napier has been charged with Conspiracy to Commit Robbery, a
C Felony, and was incarcerated in the Decatur County Jail. She
is waiting her first court appearance in Ripley County which
officials say should be some time next week.
The relationship between Napier and Ison is not known according
to police. They are also not saying if Napier is related to
the Napier family that was murdered in Laurel on September 25.
