Suspect in attempted robbery at Radio Shack has ties to Jay Gladden
Aberdeen Police have a suspect in the September 9th attempted robbery of Radio Shack, and they say she’s connected with Jay Gladden. Gladden is wanted for the robberies of Hucklebearies Espresso and TwinStar Credit Union.
Captain John Green says that on September 9th, the woman entered the store and demanded money from an employee. The suspect fled the store after the clerk went to activate the alarm.
While working on the case with Hoquiam Police, information led detectives to a 30 year old Melissa Marie Moore, the girlfriend of Jay Gladden at the time of the robberies. The suspects were living together at the time of all 3 suspected robberies. The couple is believed to be together while on the run from police.
An arrest warrant has been issued for both suspects.
If anyone has any information on the whereabouts of either of these two suspects they are asked to call the Aberdeen Police Department at 533-3180 or the tip line at 538-4450. If either suspect is observed the public is asked not to confront the suspect and to call 911 as soon as it safe to do so.
