Two Morgan County women arrested in connection with a robbery at the BP gas station in Duncan Falls were arraigned in court Wednesday.

29-year-old Emmalee Stanley of McConnelsville and 32-year-old Chasta Pettet of Malta both plead not guilty to a second degree felony count of robbery.

Muskingum County Sheriff Matt Lutz says on February 13th, one of the women walked into the BP on Main Street and told employees she had a pipe bomb under her jacket.

He says clerks didn’t actually see a bomb, but said the woman was hiding something under her shirt. No one was injured.

Both women were arrested later that evening on State Route 669 in Morgan County.

Stanley and Pettet are both being held in the Muskingum County Jail on a $100,000 bond .
