MARTIN COUNTY, Fla. (WFTV) -- A Marion County couple is facing robbery charges after investigators said the pair robbed a Panera Bread restaurant where she worked.

Police arrested Erika Nunez and Geron Jones Thursday. They said Nunez was on duty as an assistant manager when her boyfriend, Jones, robbed the store on Southwest College Road.

Investigators said surveillance images show Jones holding two employees at gunpoint and making them lay down on the ground.

Nunez then went into the back of the store and opened the safe for Jones, police said.

Police said Nunez admitted to setting up the robbery because she was having financial problems.

I can't believe ANY woman with any couth or class would want to be with these sorry thug gang bangers, so in crimes like this, she is just as guilty as holding the gun.

How does someone like this get to be an assistant manager? Oh, never mind.
