A Muldrow couple was charged Thursday in Sequoyah County District Court in Sallisaw with being accessories after the fact, destroying evidence and obstructing an officer. The charges resulted from an investigation into the armed robbery on June 29 of Freddy's One Stop in Moffett. The couple, Edward Farrel Nicol, 51, and Patricia C. Nicol, 45, of rural Muldrow, are the parents of one of the suspects in the robbery. According to the investigators report, filed with the charges, the store was robbed by two males, dressed in black clothing and wearing masks. From the video cameras at the store, investigators were able to identify the vehicle the suspects were driving, a Nissan Frontier truck that was missing a front bumper. One of the officers recognized the vehicle as one driven by a 17-year-old boy that the officer had stopped a few months earlier on a traffic violation. The investigators then went to the Nicol home where the suspect lives. The couple told the investigators that the truck did belong to them, but that they had sold the vehicle. Further investigation turned up a second suspect who agreed to speak with the investigators, the report says, "if there would be no charges brought against him because he was not the one with the gun." That young man then said the Nicol's 17-year-old son was the one who wanted to and did rob the store. The court set $10,000 bonds on each, Edward Nicol and Patricia Nicol. According to court records, neither of the young men have been charged with the robbery in district court at this time. By Sally Maxwell, Senior News Director
