APD: Doughnuts, drugs found in vehicle of pastry shop robber

Posted On: LastEdited

A woman is accused of the armed robbery of an Anchorage doughnut shop early Friday morning, according to police.

The Anchorage Police Department said in a release later Friday morning that the crime was reported just after 12 a.m. at Golden Donuts on East Tudor Road.

An employee of the shop said a woman, identified by police as 35-year-old Melissa Noel, walked in and ordered a dozen doughnuts. When the register opened, she pulled out a gun, demanded cash and ran away. APD’s release stated similar information, adding that it wasn’t known then whether she left on foot or in a vehicle, prompting a police search of the area.

Around 1 a.m., police say they stopped a vehicle at a red light near the intersection of Tudor Road and C Street. Noel, a passenger in the vehicle, matched the suspect’s description. APD stated that drug paraphernalia and a box from Golden Donuts was found inside the vehicle.

It was not specified how much money was taken from the doughnut shop.

Police arrested Noel and charged her with first-degree robbery, third-degree assault, and multiple counts of theft, providing false information and misconduct involving a weapon.

She is being held at the Anchorage Correctional Complex.
