ACWORTH, Ga. -- The woman accused of robbing a bank and leading police on a long chase had her first court appearance Tuesday morning.

Ancelly Green was denied bond. Her next hearing will be June 11.

Green was arrested Monday and booked into the Cobb County Adult Detention Center.

Police say Green walked into a SunTrust bank in Acworth and threatened to detonate a bomb if the teller did not hand over money.

Investigators believe she got away with cash, but when officers tried to pull her over for a traffic violation, she began a 22-mile chase that ended when she lost control of her SUV and flipped on Interstate 75 in Buckhead.

Drivers were stranded for hours after police shut down the highway to search Green's car for a possible bomb. They did not find one.

Green's neighbors told 11Alive News she has been evicted from two home since last summer, as she was unable to pay her rent. The Dallas woman's most recent eviction was last Thursday.

Despite her money troubles, Green's neighbors said the woman they know doesn't fit the chain of events that shut down I-75.
