Newberry woman arrested for conspiring with juveniles to rob Archer man


NEWBERRY, Fla. – Amanda Reann Messer, 21, of Newberry, was arrested yesterday evening along with two juveniles for conspiring to rob an Archer man.

Messer is accused of driving two juveniles to the robbery location and waiting in the car while one of them robbed the victim, an Archer man, of cash and the keys to his vehicle by holding him at gunpoint. The juvenile then allegedly took the victim’s wallet from his truck, got back into Messer’s car, and fled the area.

The vehicle and tag were seen on a surveillance video at the robbery site, and the vehicle was later located in Newberry. A search of the vehicle reportedly found a ski mask, the victim’s wallet, a handgun, and cash in several denominations. Post Miranda, Messer reportedly said that the other juvenile had come up with the idea to rob the victim.

Messer has been charged with armed robbery, armed burglary, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. She has been released on her own recognizance with a curfew from 7:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. and a requirement that she be accompanied by her mother if she is out of the house.

Articles about arrests are based on reports from law enforcement agencies. The charges listed are taken from the arrest report and/or court records and are only accusations. All suspects are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. 

  • What kinda bail is that sh-t. She is 21 and has to be escorted by mommy? Only in Gainesville.

  • She is dangerous and will set up people for armed robbery her bond should have been at least 200000

  • Something tells me her mother doesn’t babysit her anymore, what kind of release is that. That judge needs to be fired.

  • She should at least have an ankle monitor. Is the judge friends with her mom or what? She robbed someone at gunpoint, effectively. Thinking she has manipulated the judge is likely to make a psycho more of a psycho.


      • She admitted to law enforcement that she knew the plan one of the juveniles had come up with so how is she not just as responsible as them? I guess you’re one of those people that if somebody told you to jump off a bridge you would jump but if you got hurt you would blame it on the person that told you right ? You idiots make some of the dumbest excuses for these people. Get your head out of your azz and quit sticking up for your dumb friends. It’s all cool and fun and games until you get caught and then they wanna cry injustice they’re innocent, and they’re painting the wrong picture. She’s 21 years old and evidently still doesn’t know that there’s consequences for her actions.

      • in the police report it states that they planned to rob dude before arrival, she’s just as much at fault as the rest of them. and she had her child w her while doing all this.

  • Read the story LAYLA. she admitted to knowing the plan. As an adult she should have enough common sense to just say no.

  • This is a common tactic. They find someone who knows who’s got the $$$ or drugs and trusts them (white female) and then the thugs swoop in for their cut.

  • More crime planned and committed deep in the heart of the future conservative utopia of Sprigs County. Gosh what a cesspool that spring will be.
