It appears one woman's attempt to rob Cody's Farm Fresh Stand on Thursday afternoon has been squashed by Crystal Lake Police.
Police Cmdr. Dan Dziewior issued a press release Friday stating Amy M. Migliorato, 28, 5 Arrowhead Dr., Algonquin, has been arrested and charged with one count of robbery.
Police were called at 4:15 p.m. Thursday to Cody's Farm Fresh Stand at 140 S. Route 14, a vacant lot between The Freeze and the Crystal Lake Motel, where the 20-year-old stand attendant stated an unidentified white woman dressed in an orange jersey displayed a knife and demanded cash.
The victim handed over the day's worth of proceeds. The woman then fled on foot, the witness told police.
Based on information collected during their investigation, Crystal Lake Police obtained a search warrant for a room at the Crystal Lake Motel, 110 S. Route 14. Evidence found in the room allegedly linked Migliorato to the crime, police said.
The robbery charge leveled against Migliorato is a class 2 felony, police said. Migliorato was unable to post bond and was transported to the McHenry County Jail in Woodstock. She is scheduled to appear in court at 9 a.m. Aug. 10.
Cody's Farm Fresh Stand is a temporary, seasonal business. The Marengo-based farm stand sells fresh corn, zucchini, tomatoes and other fruits and vegetables.
