Metro police charged a 46-year-old woman in two separate convenience store robberies that occurred in the last week.

She was taken into police custody at a nearby apartment complex where officers discovered several packs of unopened cigarettes and a handgun.

During a police interview, James admitted her involvement in both crimes.

James is charged with two counts of aggravated robbery, resisting arrest, unlawful weapon possession and possession of drug paraphernalia.

She is being held in lieu of $85,000 bond.
