Ashley Danyelle Phelps, the younger sister of former NBA All-Star Kevin Garnett, was arrested in South Carolina on Tuesday, according to multiple reports.

 

Phelps attempted to rob two different Greenville, SC area Check Into Cash stores and an Advance America by telling employees she had a bomb.  

 

The 37-year-old is being held at the Greenville County Detention Center, charged with two counts of armed robbery, two counts of making a bomb threat and one count of attempted armed robbery. 

At the end of the day, you're responsible for yourself and your actions and that's all you can control. So rather than be frustrated with what you can't control, try to fix the things you can.

Phelps apparently began the short spree on Monday at a Check Into Cash location in Greenville. However, an employee was able to press the panic button after Phelps said she had a bomb.

 

She reportedly went to two locations on Tuesday in attempts to rob those locations, with an additional bomb threat made at an Advance America.

 

There's been no comment by Garnett, who is from the area and played high school basketball in nearby Mauldin.
