Two Morgan County women have been sentenced in connection with a robbery at the BP gas station in Duncan Falls.

 32-year-old Chasta Pettet of Malta and 30-year-old Emmalee Stanley of McConnelsville  appeared in Muskingum County Common Pleas Court Monday where they were both sentenced to three years in prison on a robbery charge.

Stanley will serve her term concurrently with a prison sentence from Morgan County Common Pleas Court.

Both plead guilty in April to the incident on February 13th where one of the women walked into the gas station and told employees she had  a pipe bomb under her jacket.

Clerks didn’t see a bomb, but say the woman was holding something under her shirt.

The pair was arrested later that night in Morgan County.
