Grand jury indicts Arkansas woman for her role in Wilson & Muir bank robbery


Wednesday, June 5, 2019 — The Arkansas woman who robbed the Wilson & Muir Bank branch on Culpepper Street on Friday, May 3, 2019, was indicted Wednesday by a Nelson County grand jury.


Crystal Diane Gibbons, 28, of Monette, Ark., was indicted on charges that include robbery, second-degree; possession of controlled substances, first-degree (methamphetamine); wanton endangerment, first-degree (police officer); fleeing and evading police, first-degree (motor vehicle); criminal mischief, first-degree; possession of drug paraphernalia; operating on a suspended operators license; reckless driving; criminal trespassing, third-degree.

Just before 2 p.m. on Friday, May 3, 2019, local law enforcement was advised by Nelson County Dispatch that the bank had been robbed by a woman who fled the scene in a white Chevrolet HHR. At the time of the call, Bardstown Police Officer Brad Carrico was conducting a traffic stop on KY 245 when he saw the suspect’s vehicle turn north from Culpepper onto KY 245. He pursued the vehicle onto Spencer Mattingly, and the pursuit ended in an open field. Carrico had the female in custody by 2:04 p.m.

Bail was set at $50,000 cash only, plus conditions.
