Bohemia, NY - January 9, 2017 - Suffolk County Police Fifth Squad detectives today arrested woman for attempting to rob a Bohemia gas station and for fraud.
Jaime Jewler entered the Gulf gas station, located at 4909 Sunrise Highway, Bohemia, at approximately 10:50 a.m. on November 25, 2016, displayed what appeared to be a handgun, and demanded money. The attendant was able to wrestle the gun away from Jewler who then fled the location.
In two unrelated incidents that took place on November 8 and 9, 2016, Jewler solicited sponsor donations for a cancer walk. Jewler then altered the checks given to her and cashed them without donating the money to the charity.

Police are asking for other individuals who may have been victims of this scam to contact the Fifth Squad at 631-854-8552.
