Taking the candy may have been easy, but doing the time may be hard for two women who allegedly robbed kids of their candy at gunpoint on Halloween.
Kendra Grace Butts, 18, and Amber Marie Martin, 20, from Wasilla, Alaska have been indicted on seven counts of robbery, one count of attempted robbery and eight counts of assault. They each will face a maximum of 180 years in prison if convicted of the charges.
Eight children testified before a grand jury that two women wearing ski masks jumped out of a truck, pointed a revolver at the children, fired a shot into the air and demanded their candy. Seven of the children gave up their candy while the other child hid behind a tree during the incident, and kept his candy.
The women were arrested after one of them bragged about robbing some kids of their candy on Halloween. Police then found a plastic pumpkin with one of the robbery victim’s name on it in a cache of stolen goods worth more than $100,000.
