ASHLAND, Va. (WRIC)—The Ashland Police Department has determined that an alleged robbery and abduction that occurred at a Hanover County business on Sunday was falsely reported.

Around 1 p.m. on Dec. 15, officers responded to the 800 block of England Street for a report of a robbery and abduction. The female victim claimed that an adult male entered the backseat of her car, displayed a gun and forced her to drive him to a business on Cross Corner Road. According to the victim, he then stole an undisclosed amount of cash from the business before fleeing the scene.

An investigation determined not only that the alleged victim, Amanda Lynn Russnak, of the 16000 block of Stacey Lane in Woodford, was an employee of the business, but also that she conspired with others to steal its money. She was charged with conspiracy to commit grand larceny.

The male suspect, Victor Thomas White, of the 300 block of Arbor Oak Drive in Ashland, who Russnak claimed abducted her, was charged with grand larceny and conspiracy to commit grand larceny.

Another employee of the business, Amber Nicole White, of the 300 block of Arbor Oak Drive in Ashland, was charged with conspiracy to commit grand larceny.

All three suspects are incarcerated at Pamunkey Regional Jail.

The incident remains under investigation by the Ashland Police Department. Anyone with information is asked to contact APD at 804-798-1227 or Crime Stoppers of Metro Richmond at 804-780-1000.
