Clarksville Police released the name of a woman, who they believe is responsible for scamming an elderly Christian County man out of hundreds of dollars.
Police say after releasing photographs of the woman to local media agencies, the department received a steady stream of calls identifying the woman as 41-year old Stephanie Michelle Robinson of Marla Circle, Clarksville.
Robinson was contacted by a CPD Detective asking her to come in for an interview, which she agreed to and police say during questioning she vehemently denied that she was one in the photographs, but later admitted that she was the one with 81-year Edward Burt of Oak Grove in the photographs at the bank.
Burt is the husband of former Oak Grove City Councilwoman and former Mayoral candidate Bea Burt.
Robinson is accused of following him very closely and told him his wheels were sparking in violation of a city ordinance once he was pulled over.
She allegedly told Burt the citation was normally for 600 dollars, but that she would give him a break and only make it 400 dollars.
Burt and Robinson then went to a bank together, where he withdrew 400 dollars and gave her the cash. He later went to the police station and told officers giving her the money was against his better judgment, but he did it in case there was a legitimate infraction.
Robinson told police she did not represent herself as law enforcement, but did mention that she was a representative of the police department.
She was booked into the Montgomery County Jail on a $2,000 bond around 4 p.m. today and is charged with one count of theft of property and criminal impersonation.
