A West Haven woman is accused of staging an armed robbery at her job, according to police.
On May 24, Milford police responded to a report of an armed robbery at the Citgo Gas Station on Broad Street.
Police say the store clerk, 31-year-old Jamie Darouse, reported a man wearing sunglasses, a hat, and face mask entered the store, demanding money and said he had a loaded hand gun.
Darouse gave the money in the register and deposit money, totaling over $8,000.
An investigation revealed that Darouse, along Khari Ruffin and a third person allegedly staged the robbery.
