Fast food supervisor charged in robbery
CLEVE R. WOOTSON JR.
A former McDonald's shift leader is charged with orchestrating a robbery that left the gunman -- her 20-year-old cousin -- dead.
Crystal Danielle Steel, 23, has been charged with conspiracy to commit armed robbery and armed robbery. She was the shift manager at the time of the Jan. 25 attempted robbery at the west Charlotte McDonald's.
The robbery attempt was foiled when Tiemeyer Neshawn Sanders, 25, another McDonald's employee, shot Donte McFadden.
Sanders was charged on Friday with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. According to police, the district attorney's office did not charge Sanders with murder because we was acting in self defense and in defense of another. But Sanders is a convicted felon and was prohibited from possessing a handgun.
