After getting the money and putting it into a plastic bag, the arrest report says Groves "prayed to God and talked about the devil" before she exited the bank.

Bank employees told police that Groves was the person who committed the robbery. After leaving the bank, Groves got into a car in the parking lot where she was arrested and returned to the bank.

Groves is being held at Louisville Metro Corrections on a $5,000 cash bond. A not guilty plea was entered for Groves by the court and she was ordered to undergo a mental health evaluation.

The cash taken during the robbery was recovered.
