The suspects in a Sunday night 7-Eleven robbery were also involved in a Purple Parrot robbery that occurred less than three hours earlier, police said.
The robbery occurred at 9:40 p.m. at the 259 E. Barnett Road No. 1 Purple Parrot. The clerk at the business told Medford police a man wearing a bandana and wielding a small bat entered the business and demanded money. Police believe the suspect to be 22-year-old Trevor Wiley.
The clerk hit the panic alarm and told the man to leave. He did, saying he would be back with a gun.
Wiley and his driver, 32-year-old Stephanie Flood, were arrested just before midnight on charges of being involved in both robberies.
A man allegedly threatened a 7-Eleven clerk with a weapon Sunday night before swiping an undisclosed amount of cash and fleeing in a getaway car, but police caught up with him about 15 minutes later.
Trevor Wiley, 22, and his alleged lookout and driver, 32-year-old Stephanie Flood, are both held in the Jackson County Jail. Wiley is held on two counts of second-degree robbery and possession of heroin, jail records show. His bail is set at over $2 million. Flood is held on two counts of second-degree robbery. Her bail is set at $2 million.
Medford police said the incident took place just after 11:30 p.m. at the 7-Eleven near the intersection of Crater Lake Avenue and Delta Waters Road. Police said Wiley walked in and picked up several inexpensive items before going to the front counter. Investigators added Flood kept watch outside in the car.
"He told (the clerk) he wanted the money in the drawer," said Sgt. DJ Graham. "When he stalled, (Wiley) implied that he had a weapon."
Police said Wiley reached for his waistband during the threat, giving the impression he was reaching for the weapon. The clerk complied with Wiley's demands and gave him money. Wiley then fled.
Police responded to the scene after a 911 call. The clerk gave investigators a description of Wiley and the vehicle he left in, an early 90s Toyota Camry hatchback.
Police conducted a traffic stop at about 11:45 p.m. at Vilas Road and Highway 62 after seeing a vehicle that matched the given description. Wiley and Flood were both in the vehicle. Wiley had a small baton on him. Both suspects were arrested after being interviewed and lodged in the Jackson County Jail.
