‘Bonnie’ from alleged 2021 car heist busted for Northfield convenience store robbery

February 2, Amanda Conant ( 32, from Randolph) was arrested for the robbery of Convenience Plus, a Main Street, Northfield store, Northfield police report.

On November 2, 2022 Northfield Police were dispatched to the report of a robbery at Convenience Plus. Police were told by the cashier that the robbery was committed by a female in a green hooded sweatshirt, approximately 5′ 03″, medium build, with the hood pulled tightly around her face and a bandana over her face. The money taken was approximately $860.

Later, during another investigation, Det. Tucker developed information that Conant had committed the robbery. Conant was arrested due to several other warrants and brought to the Chittenden County Correctional Facility for lack of bail. She was cited to appear in court this week. 

This isn’t Conant’s first run-in with the law.

As reported by Vermont State Police, Conant was involved in a self-styled ‘Bonnie and Clyde’ car theft in May 21 2021: “The vehicle had been spray-painted red, had its catalytic converter removed and the vehicle registration had been replaced with improper registration plates. The words “Bonnie & Clyde 2021” were observed to have been spray-painted on the vehicle’s hood.”

Reckless endangerment with gunfire – On Feb. 5 at 2:30 AM, St. Johnsbury police were dispatched to a citizen dispute on Summer St, in St Johnsbury. After investigation, there was found to be a bullet hole next to the refrigerator. Quatavious Bray, 31, said he discharged a firearm a couple days prior causing the bullet to go into the wall towards another apartment. He has been cited for reckless endangerment to appear in court in April.
