— Police from Garner and Raleigh filed charges Tuesday against a woman they accused of taking part in two August hold-ups, driving the getaway car in one.

Stephanie Amelia Frady, 22, of 917 Seventh Ave., Apt. C202, in Garner was charged with two counts of conspiracy to commit armed robbery and with being an accessory after the fact of a robbery.

She surrendered at the Wake County Detention Center about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday after she found out police had issued warrants for her, Raleigh police spokesman Jim Sughrue said.

Garner police said in an arrest warrant that Frady, who told police she is a student at Miller-Motte College, conspired with Rodrecus Lamar Canady and Roy Decoda Locklear in a robbery at a Cricket Wireless store on West U.S. 70 on Aug. 20. They listed two charges of conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon.

Raleigh police, in their warrant, charged that Frady drove a getaway car for Canady in an Aug. 17 hold-up at a Family Dollar store, and they made the accessory charge.

Frady’s bond was set at a total of $50,000.

Canady, 25, of Raleigh, had been arrested March 6 on charges of robbery with a dangerous weapon and kidnapping in connection with a hold-up at a Burger King restaurant in Raleigh.

He was placed on 36 months’ probation in May after being convicted of common law robbery, but he was being held again Wednesday on more than $1 million bond on two charges of robbery with a dangerous weapon, two counts of conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon, attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon and probation violation.

Those charges were all made between Aug. 22 and Aug. 29.

Locklear, 20, of Wadesboro, also was in custody Wednesday, being held on a total of $403,000 bond on four counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon, five counts of conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon, one count of attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon, two counts of assaulting a government official.
