WASHINGTON COUNTY, TN (WJHL) -

Two people are in jail accused of threatening a woman with a shotgun and pistol and then stealing her painkillers.

Washington County Sheriff's Office Lt. Daniel Rhudy says Christa Bailey and John Watson, both 20, are charged with aggravated robbery. Deputies are still looking for two other suspects connected to the crime, Lt. Rhudy said.

It happened along a stretch of Dry Creek Road around 5:30 pm Saturday. Lt. Rhudy said four people picked up the alleged victim, who had just moved there from Unicoi County, and told her they'd drive her back to Unicoi County. Instead, officers say those people threatened the woman with two weapons, stole her bottle of morphine and told her to get out of the car.

Within an hour, Lt. Rhudy says Unicoi County deputies had Bailey and Watson in custody at their home on Guinn Lane in Erwin. According to Lt. Rhudy, the woman's painkillers were found in their possession.
