Police have arrested a woman accused of robbing two area Allsup’s convenience stores late last month.

Bonnie Amber Burhans, 38, faces one count of felony armed robbery, and one count of felony robbery in two robberies at stores between Dec. 27 and Dec. 29, 2020.

The first robbery was reported around 12:15 a.m. Dec. 27 at the Allsup’s on Seventh Street near Dalbey Drive. Employees told police that a heavyset woman had been waiting in line to pay for a 99-cent orange juice, but when she approached the counter, she produced a black handgun and demanded all the cash in the register, along with several cartons of cigarettes, according to and arrest affidavit filed in San Miguel Magistrate Court.

Two days later, on Dec. 29, LVPD was called to the Allsup’s on Grand Avenue near Garfield Avenue just before midnight for another robbery. A store employee told police a woman said she had a gun, then demanded cash from the register as well as cigarettes. The employee told police the woman said, “I don’t mean to be a b—-, but just throw in all the money and cigarettes.” The woman also grabbed several items that were on the counter. Employees provided a description of the woman, and the SUV she left in as a passenger.
