76-Year-Old Woman Takes Gun From Girl, Thwarts Robbery

A 76-year-old storeowner in Washington County said she was having a bad day when a young woman tried to rob her on Monday.

Police said Virginia Hart was behind the counter of the Lone Pine Market in Marianna when a young girl came in and demanded money.

Police said when Hart refused, the woman pulled a gun and again demanded money.

Once again, police said, Hart refused and then grabbed the gun, picked up a stool and chased the woman out the door.

The girl is described as blond, in her 20s and was wearing a blue sweatshirt.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police.
