— Police charged two women with an armed robbery after money was stolen Monday night from a Shell gas station on South Saunders Street.

Police arrested Shada Saquea Taylor, 20, of 114 Chatham Woods Drive in Cary about 10 p.m. in the 500 block of Bragg Street, according to an arrest report.

In an arrest warrant, they charged her with robbery with a dangerous weapon and conspiracy to commit that offense, saying she and two other people had a revolver and threatened a clerk when $237 was taken at about 8 p.m.

The other woman charged was Quanika Shanea Thompson, 21, of 208 Hill St. She was arrested at 565 Bragg St. about 2:30 a.m. Tuesday, reports show.

Police filed the same two charges against her as against Taylor.

Arrest warrants indicate police are seeking a third person in the case, but no arrest had been made Tuesday, police spokesman Jim Sughrue said.

Taylor’s bond was set at $200,000 and Thompson’s at $250,000.
