On Friday, January 9, 2015 at approximately 4pm, Sandwich Police arrested a 27 year old Sandwich female for Thursday’s attempted armed robbery of the Express Mart located at 127 Route 6A.

Sandwich Police detectives, working on a tip supplied through the Sandwich Police Facebook page after photos of the suspect were posted, positively identified Amanda E. Bacon of Liberty Street as the perpetrator of Thursdays attempted robbery.

Bacon was subsequently arrested and charged with one count of Armed Assault with Intent to Rob.  A consent search of the residence Bacon was staying in yielded further evidence of the crime.  The knife used in the attempted robbery was also recovered a short distance from Bacon’s residence.

Bacon is being held at the Barnstable County Correctional Facility on $1,000 cash bail and is due to be arraigned in the morning.
