Trio Charged In Robbery At East Ridge Motel

Tuesday, November 20, 2012

Three people have been charged in a robbery at an East Ridge motel.

East Ridge Police said a man set up the robbery and recruited two women to carry it out.

East Ridge Police responded on Monday to a report of an aggravated robbery at the Waverly Motel. Upon arrival, police made contact with the victims of the robbery. The victims gave physical and clothing descriptions of two females who had robbed them at gunpoint.

The two females, later identified as Tosha Causey, 33, and Carol Phillips, 23, knocked on the victims’ room door and were allowed to enter after the victims recognized them as patrons of the same motel. Once inside the room, Ms. Phillips produced a handgun (later identified as a BB gun) and Tosha Causey claimed to have a knife. They then searched the victims and victims’ belongings before stealing items, including a purse and two wallets.

Police then made contact with the two women and Brian Condra, 32, in their room at the Waverly Motel. Officers obtained permission to search the room and found stolen items and the BB gun used in the robbery.

Carol Phillips and Tosha Causey each admitted her involvement in the robbery and advised that Brian Condra had planned the robbery and owned the BB gun used, police said.

They were each arrested on charges of aggravated robbery and conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery. Brian Condra originally gave police a false name, but his true identity was verified when his wallet and ID were found hidden with his belongings and next to the BB gun used in the robbery. He was charged with conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery and criminal impersonation.

The victims’ stolen items were returned.
