Blount County Sheriff James Lee Berrong is asking for the public’s help in locating a Maryville woman and an unidentified man in connection with the robbery of a 75-year-old Louisville man earlier today.
There is a warrant on file for aggravated robbery for 28-year-old Amanda Chelsea Fuller.
Shortly after 11 a.m. today, deputies responded to an alarm call on Jones Bend Road. The homeowner, a 75-year-old man, told deputies that Fuller, who is known to him, came to his residence and asked him for money. When he refused, she reached into his pocket and took his wallet and ran to a waiting vehicle, which he described as a brown in color SUV with the possible letter “H” in the back window. The victim followed her to the car in an attempt to get his wallet back. He told deputies the male driver got out of the car, brandished a pistol at him, and shoved him to the ground, then left in the SUV. Medics treated the victim at the scene.
Sheriff’s deputies are searching for Amanda Fuller and her unknown male accomplice.
