Police are searching for a woman who forced her way into a Mableton, Georgia home with two masked men who were armed with guns. Police identified Amanda Tanks, 19, as the woman who tricked a homeowner into opening her front door after she claimed she had an emergency.
Tanks claimed to know the homeowner's boyfriend, "T", who is a partner in the Medusa Lounge, a popular hangout for hip-hop artists like Migos, Cardi B, and Trey Songz. The club on Buford highway is also used as a location for Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta scenes.
"T", who was not at home, spoke to the woman via his Ring app on his phone.
"Who is this?" he asked her.
"Man, this Teedra," she responded.
“Man, you know who I am. Stop playing with me. You know who I am. Stop playing with me,” the woman yelled in the video.
After struggling with the homeowner, Tanks and the 2 men forced their way into her home and pointed guns at her two young sons.
The mother told Channel 2 Action News Chris Jose she was able to escape with her sons out a garage door into the backyard. She said she heard gunshots as she fled.
Tanks is being charged with one count of residential robbery, aggravated assault, false imprisonment and cruelty to children, according to police.
The two male suspects who were with Tanks are still at large. The Smyrna Police Department seeks the public’s assistance in identifying the two men.
Smyrna police said this case was a top priority for the department, but "T" issued a stern warning of his own on Instagram.com.
"I WILL CATCH UP 2 YALL VERY SOON WHOEVER U ARE I WILL TRUST ME".
Anyone who has any information on Tanks' whereabouts is asked to call police at 770-434-6666 or Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477.
