KINGMAN - A Lake Havasu City man and his girlfriend face felony charges after allegedly plotting an escape from the Mohave County jail.
Jail staff in Kingman reportedly uncovered a plot involving inmate Michael William Ruane, 28, and Megan Lee Husted, 27.
Ruane has been held in the Mohave County jail on a $1 million bond since Aug. 5, the day after he and Stephan Lab, 23, allegedly committed armed robbery at a Circle K convenience store in Lake Havasu City at about 4 a.m.
Lake Havasu City police believe Ruane wore a mask and committed the robbery while Labs waited behind the wheel.
A citizen called police at about 2 p.m. that day to report a conversation she overheard. The caller said two men talked about a gun, and one of them was "possibly" holding a black ski mask.
Police found clothing matching what the suspect wore in a commercial trash container.
Both men reportedly admitted their involvement in the crime.
Lab was charged with armed robbery and was jailed on a $500,000 bond.
Ruane was charged with armed robbery, two counts of aggravated assault, and misconduct involving a weapon. On Aug. 14, the Mohave County Grand Jury indicted him on the same charges, along with two counts of kidnapping.
Ruane has been convicted other crimes in the past.
