OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) -- A federal jury has convicted an Alabama woman in the September 2016 robbery of a post office in Randolph in Pontotoc County.

Angela Roy was found guilty of robbery of a postal facility and use of a firearm in the commission of a violent crime.

Roy was arrested along with Richard Thomas Scott in the September 23, 2016, robbery at the Randolph Post Office.

 

Scott took the woman's purse and left with Roy.

The couple was arrested two days later in Lockport, Louisiana.

Investigators say Roy had lived in the Randolph area in 2011.

Scott pleaded guilty to the charges earlier this year.

The jury returned the verdict on day three of her trial.

Both will be sentenced at a later date.
