Police say a woman tried to get a couple to rob the Pennsylvania fast-food restaurant where she worked.

Police say 23-year-old Alayna Weishner-Rush asked the duo to rob the Burger King in Washington, Pennsylvania, on Jan. 14. The suspect wanted them to rob the restaurant while she was working the drive-thru window, so she could split the money with them later.

But police say the couple instead contacted police about the plan and no robbery occurred.

The Washington Observer-Reporter first reported the charges Monday. They were filed last week and Weishner-Rush faces a preliminary hearing on two counts of criminal solicitation on Feb. 16.

Online court records don't list an attorney for the suspect, who remains in the Washington County jail on charges she violated parole in another case.
