AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

Latasha Rouse is behind bars after being accused of robbing her next door neighbor.

It happened Wednesday morning, at 11:30 a.m. on Blanchard Road.

According to the Richmond County Sheriff's Office, Rouse went to Janice Donaldson's home to borrow money to pay her Georgia Power Bill.

Donaldson loaned Rouse the money and even drove Rouse to pay her Georgia Power bill on Walton Way.

Investigators said shortly after, Donaldson heard a knock on her front door and went to the door to see who it was. 

Donaldson cracked open the front door at which time Rouse pushed her way into the residence knocking Donaldson into the wall and eventually to the ground. 

Rouse then stole an undisclosed amount of money from Donaldson's purse and ran from the scene. 

Investigators subsequently apprehended Rouse at her residence. 

During the investigation it was learned that Rouse did not use the money she initially received from Donaldson to pay the power bill but instead purchased narcotics. 

Rouse is currently being held in the Richmond County Jail on the charges of Robbery by Force and Possession of Cocaine.
