Handgun fired in struggle; 50-year-old Michelle Spicer, 58-year-old Harold Warrington arrested.
A Georgetown couple was arrested after impersonating immigration agents in order to commit a robbery on the evening of Thursday, Feb. 1.
At around 5 p.m. that night, the victim and three passengers, one of which was a toddler, were driving on the 200 block of North Race Street in Georgetown when another vehicle pulled alongside them and a female passenger displayed a badge. Not seeing any emergency lights, the victim continued to drive before stopping in front of a business, at which time a female suspect, 50-year-old Michelle Spicer, of Georgetown, approached the victim’s passenger side window.
Spicer again displayed a badge and identified herself as a police officer to the occupants, asking the victim for her identification and her green card. She identified herself as “Immigration” to the occupants, opened the victim’s passenger door, reached across the passenger’s seat and attempted to grab the victim’s wallet. Spicer produced a handgun and pointed the gun at the victim’s chest. The victim grabbed the gun and Spicer pulled the trigger. The victim and other occupants of the vehicle began screaming for help. Spicer dropped the victim’s wallet and the gun. She fled the scene in a vehicle operated by a male, identified as 58-year-old Harold Warrington.
On Friday, Feb. 2, Georgetown Police Department officers arrested both Spicer and Warrington on charges of first-degree robbery, criminal impersonation of a police officer, aggravated menacing, second-degree conspiracy and endangering the welfare of a child. Both were committed to Sussex Correctional Institution in lieu of $89,000 cash bond.
