UPDATE: Naked Woman Arrested for Trying to Rob Convenience Store

By  | 


CROSS LANES, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- The woman accused of trying to rob a convenience store, wearing only a towel refused to be arraigned on the criminal charge.

Deputies say Drema Gale Setliff, 30, of Charleston, has been charged with robbery.

The incident happened at the One Stop convenience store in the 300 block of Goff Mountain Road in Cross Lanes.

Deputies say around 1:30 a.m. Thursday, they were responding to reports of a naked woman in a motel parking lot. A short time later, the panic alarm was reported at the convenience store.

Deputies say Setliff walked into the One Stop partially covered with a white towel.

Witnesses say Setliff tried locking the front door, demanded money from the register, then forced the clerk to take her to the store's safe. She is accused of grabbing the clerk's hair and yelled for her to open the safe.

Another witness then helped the clerk escape and deputies later found Setliff inside the store, where she allegedly told them to "take me to jail."

During Setliff's arraignment Thursday morning, she came in crying and refused to talk to the magistrate. The magistrate tells WSAZ they will most likely try to arraign Setliff again on Friday.

The magistrate says he will set her bond at $50,000.

If convicted, Setliff faces ten years in prison.
