ASCENSION PARISH - Deputies in Ascension have arrested a woman who pulled a weapon on a store employee earlier this month.

The incident was reported at Dollar General on Highway 42 on July 18 shortly before 9 p.m. Reports say a store clerk caught 36-year-old Amanda Craven trying to steal items from the store.

The employee confronted Craven outside, but Craven pulled out a weapon. She then fled the scene in a gray 2013 Lexus ES 250.

Craven was arrested Tuesday and charged with aggravated assault with a firearm and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Authorities say Craven has a lengthy criminal history with over 17 arrests with charges stemming from theft, simple burglary, and drug charges.
