Soon after that a panic alarm was reported at the One Stop convenience store next door.
When the Kanawha County deputy arrived he searched the store and found Drema Setliff, 30 years old of Charleston, WV. She was naked, but partially covered by a white towel she held. She said, "take me to jail." So, the deputy did just that! She was handcuffed and taken to a police cruiser.
Witnesses said Ms. Setliff entered the store, she attempted to lock the front door, then demanded the clerk open the register drawer. She put her hand in the drawer, then told the clerk to take her to the safe. That's when she grabbed the clerk by the hair and yelled for her to open the safe.
At that moment, someone opened the store door and helped the clerk leave while they wanted on deputies to arrive. Ms Setliff then went to the back room of the store where she was found by a Kanawha County deputy.
Ms. Setliff was arrested for robbery. She has since been taken to South Central Regional Jail to await arraignment.
