A recent convenience store holdup that police said was the work of a red-haired woman claiming she was armed has been solved.

Priscilla Ann Sebastian, 40, of Wichita was jailed overnight – a little more than a week after the Presto at 515 N. Seneca was robbed of cash at around 8 p.m. on June 6. “She was arrested last night and booked for that aggravated robbery,” Sgt. Nikki Woodrow, spokeswoman for the Wichita Police Department, said Wednesday morning.

Authorities last week released surveillance photos that showed the robber inside of the store and asked for the public’s help finding her.

The search started after a Presto employee told police after the robbery that a woman walked into the store, said she had a weapon and took $50 in cash before leaving with a man in a stolen red Nissan Versa bearing Kansas tag 463 HZV.

Woodrow said she didn’t know whether the man in the Nissan was found.
