Sisters Rob Hotel, Pocket-Dial Reveals Their Identities
“Of two sisters, one is always the watcher, one the dancer.” – unknown
Two sisters who robbed a hotel were later identified when one of the suspects accidentally pocket-dialed the hotel minutes after the heist.
One of the suspects walked in the hotel wearing gray sweatpants, a gray sweatshirt, sunglasses and a black bandana covering her mouth and approached the front desk clerk with her hands inside her sweater’s front pockets indicating she was armed.
The burglar demanded her to get some money from the cash register and left the hotel with the cash.
The clerk then called the police to report the incident. While on her cell phone talking to a dispatcher, the hotel’s phone rang and she heard the two women discuss the robbery as if the caller had inadvertently “pocket dialed” the hotel.
The clerk was able to recognize one of the voices as belonging to a former employee who had just been fired a few days earlier, 22-year-old Ashlie Alewine.
The cops were able to trace the call which led to the arrest of Alewine and her sister, Nakilya Wright, 18, who participated in the robbery as the getaway driver.
The bandidas were charged with robbery and petit theft.
