A Florida woman has been arrested with the man who held her at gunpoint during an armed robbery at a Circle K gas station. The modern-day Bonnie and Clyde.

On Friday, Deputies responded to the Circle K located at 10685 U.S. Highway 98 in Walton County after a 911 call at 5:20 am in reference to a subject holding the store clerk at gunpoint.

After taking the cash the subject fled the scene on foot heading eastbound towards a nearby plaza.

The gas station clerk Mary Yard, 30, of DeFuniak Springs has now been arrested by Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office and charged with fleeing and eluding and aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer.

Charges stem from her involvement in a multi-county multi-agency pursuit where she drove Dallas Francis, 33, as he repeatedly shot at deputies and later troopers following an attempted traffic stop.

Yard was originally thought to be the victim of the Friday morning robbery while working her shift, when Francis robbed her at gunpoint, taking more than $34,000 in cash.

Deputies say Francis has a lengthy criminal history including prior felony charges of aggravated robbery out of Ohio.

It was less than 24 hours later he and Yard led deputies through three counties driving more than 60 miles at speeds exceeding 100 miles per hour before being stopped on Interstate 10 at mile marker 53. It was there he opened fire on Florida Highway Patrol troopers and Okaloosa and Walton County deputies.

The shooting shut down I-10 for several hours as the Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigated.

Yard was eventually booked into the Okaloosa County Jail and Francis is being treated at Fort Walton Beach Medical Center.

Additional charges are pending out of Walton County for both Yard and Francis.
