A call for a disturbance sends sheriff's deputies to a residence in Lake Caroline over the weekend.
Caroline County Sheriff Tony Lippa says a couple from King George went allegedly to the residence to purchase some narcotics when the three women attempted to rob them. He describes it as a drug deal that went bad.
Charged are 23-year-old JoAnn Marie Ball, 63-year-old JoAnn Dale McBride and 43-year-old Endora Yvette Jamie-Fitting. Each of the three faces two counts of robbery and one count of conspiracy to commit robbery. In addition, McBride faces a count of malicious wounding and the use of a firearm in the commission of a felony. Jaime-Fitting faces one count each of assault and distribution of a controlled substance.
The three were jailed pending arraignment on September 28.
