PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL (WFLX)-Police have released 911 calls related to the latest arrest of Stefanie Woods. She became infamous for her role in stealing money from a Girl Scout in early 2008. Earlier this year, Woods was released from a state-run, locked-down, juvenile drug treatment program.
Now Woods faces a much more serious charge in the adult system-- setting up a man to rob him of his drugs. Palm Beach Gardens Police say Stefanie had agreed to give the man a ride. When she went inside a restaurant, officers say Woods' boyfriend and another man, both armed, jumped in Woods' car, taking more than 200 methadone and xanax tablets from the man.
"They went inside my pocket, checked my pants, took my medicine," the victim explained in his 911 call. "They got all my medicine and everything."
The victim was dropped off at the Gardens Mall. Initially police say he believed Woods was also a victim.
"Did you know the female?" asked a 911 operator.
"Yes, her name is Stefanie," the man replied.
The victim had given officers phone numbers for Stefanie and one of her friends. Eventually Woods called police as well.
"Hi. I was just told that the police are looking for me," Woods began her conversation with a police operator.
Woods was asked about the men who were in her car. "They got out of the car," she said.
According to the arrest report, Woods initially told officers she was a victim too. Later Gardens Police say Stefanie admitted her role in the set-up.
Friday Woods' boyfriend, Alex Rill, made his first court appearance charged with armed robbery. The arrest report indicates he denied involvement. Judge Ted Booras ordered Rill held without bail.
