BRUNSWICK, Maine — Brunswick police on Wednesday charged a Topsham woman in connection with the October armed robbery of the Big Apple convenience store on Pleasant Street.

Amber Owen, 28, was arrested at her home and charged with robbery and criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon.

Owen remained in Cumberland County Jail on Thursday morning, held on $100,000 cash bail, according to Deputy Chief Marc Hagan of the Brunswick Police Department. Her arraignment was scheduled for later Thursday.

Just before 8:30 p.m. Oct. 25, police went to the Big Apple at 111 Pleasant St. for a report that a man and woman had entered the store, displayed a handgun and demanded cash.

The clerk turned over an undisclosed amount of cash, police said at the time.

The suspects also allegedly attempted to rob a female customer, but were apparently scared off before obtaining any money from her.

The suspects were described as a white woman, 5 feet, 4 inches tall, 220-240 pounds, and a white man, 5 feet, 6 inches tall, 240-260 pounds. Both wore bandanas covering their faces.

Citing an ongoing investigation, Hagan declined to say what evidence led police to Owen as a suspect.

No other arrests have been made in the case, according to Brunswick police Detective Rich Cutliffe.
