A jury trial has been scheduled for a Council Bluffs woman accused of first-degree robbery.

Jami J. Thummel, 50, is slated to be arraigned at 1:30 p.m. on July 8 and stand trial at 9:30 a.m. on Aug. 6 in Pottawattamie County District Court, according to court records.

Thummel allegedly forced her way into a home on May 10 with two males, one described as a large male about 6-feet, 1-inch tall wearing sweatpants and a white shirt, the other as a short, stocky Hispanic male wearing a black hoodie and sweatpants, according to a police report.

The three entered a bedroom where a man was lying down, and the Hispanic male allegedly took out a black, semiautomatic handgun and pointed it at the man, reports stated.

He then put the gun away, jumped on the bed and punched the victim in the face several times. He also reached into the victim’s pockets.

According to the victim, Thummel had detailed his truck earlier in the day, expecting payment for the work. The victim said he had already paid her, according to the police report.

He said the assailant had removed about $300 in cash from his pocket. After the Hispanic male took the money, the three intruders all left in a gold or yellow vehicle, traveling in an unknown direction.

Thummel was arrested on warrant on June 3. A preliminary hearing was held Tuesday, and her bond was set at $25,000, according to court records, but that was to be reviewed today.
