A woman was arrested Wednesday in connection with the robbery of two Omaha men who went to Council Bluffs last Saturday intending to buy a pickup and were instead robbed.

Police say the employees of A-1 Auto Parts in Omaha agreed to meet with a man and woman near South 15th Street and 4th Avenue just before 11 a.m. When they arrived the man pulled a gun and the woman brandished a crowbar, taking cash and a cell phone. The suspects fled in the 2011 black Chevy Silverado.

Thirty-two-year-old Misty Huff of Council Bluffs faces a first-degree robbery charge. Her alleged accomplice, 21-year-old Jared Brandt, remains at large. He is considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information about Brandt's whereabouts is asked to call Council Bluffs Crime Stoppers at 712-328-7867.
