BEAUFORT, S.C. — Authorities have charged two Parris Island Marines in connection with an attempted armed robbery which left another Marine dead.

The Beaufort Gazette reports Beaufort police say 18-year-old Pfc. Sierra Danielle Powers and 20-year-old Pfc. Brandi Toniqua Hardy are charged with criminal conspiracy for their roles in the attempted robbery during a drug deal last Friday. Both are in jail pending bond hearings.

Deputy Chief Dale McDorman wouldn’t specify how Powers and Hardy were involved.

McDorman said two Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort privates arranged to purchase marijuana from another man. According to McDorman, it was during that deal that the Marines pulled fake pistols and tried to rob the man, who pulled a real gun and shot and killed 20-year-old Pfc. Jerrit Timberson of Fairview Heights, Ill.
