Police arrested a West Columbia woman Wednesday following the armed robbery of a Payless Shoe store on Augusta Road.
Carrying her three-month-old baby, Jaclyn Alveshire, of Whiteside Circle, allegedly took a pair of shoes and left the store without paying for them.
Alveshire pulled a gun on a store clerk when confronted outside the store before getting into her car and driving away, the West Columbia Police Department stated.
The 32-year-old mother was arrested a short distance away and has been charged with armed robbery, use of a gun in a violent crime and unlawful conduct toward a child. Wednesday afternoon she was being held in the Lexington County Detention Center and her child turned over to relatives.
