The woman who stands accused of robbing a west Cobb bank and leading police on a high-speed chase through the county Monday was apparently homeless at the time of the incident.

Accused bank robber Ancely Faye Green, 39, appeared via video conference from the Cobb County Jail in front of Magistrate Judge Jennifer M. Inmon on Tuesday morning.

The criminal arrest warrant listed Green as a homeless woman from Dallas. The mother of three is being charged with armed robbery of the SunTrust Bank at 1755 Mars Hill Road about six miles south of Acworth.

According to the warrant, Green walked into the bank and presented a note instructing the teller to “empty all the tills and that (Green) was strapped with a bomb.”

According to the document, Green was handed $425 and exited the bank.

Green was also charged with fleeing and attempting to elude police officers during a 23-mile chase through Cobb County at speeds reaching 120 mph.

Police say the chased ended when Green lost control of the black 2003 Chevrolet Trailblazer and crashed on Interstate 75.

A police bomb squad was called to the scene and searched the wrecked SUV while the interstate was shut down in both directions for about two hours Monday.

No explosives were found on Green or in her car.

Green was denied bond Tuesday. She will remain in the county jail pending a bond hearing that has been scheduled for June 11, according to the magistrate’s office.

Green’s Facebook profile lists two daughters, one who lives in Dallas and attends East Paulding High School, and one who lives in Marietta with her husband.

Why was it necessary to print where her children go to school and live??? They were not involved and are probably humiliated enough without your insensitivity!!! You should be ashamed!!!

Huh? Do you propose that banks should immediately tell the police how much was taken when they initially call in the robbery? A bank robbery is a bank robbery. Lighten up.

So the cops do a 120 MPH chase endangering not only their lives but the lives of innocent civilians for $425 dollars and an alleged bomb.

Something is very wrong with this.

If they had time to block intersections so she could fly through them, they had time to deploy those tire strips they are always touting or at least block the intersection with a bus or tractor trailed forcing her to stop!
