THOMAS COUNTY, GA (WALB) -

The female armed robber police think was disarmed by a store clerk earlier today in Thomasville then went to Pavo and robbed the bank there, authorities believe.

Then police believe she fled to the Coolidge area, where police tried to stop her.  

She flew down Highway 188, lost control of her car, and crashed into a canal, where her car went off the road and into the water before officers could get to her.

We are told that they recovered a gun from the car, and that money taken in the robbery was strewn into the water in the canal.

WALB's Stephen Abel is following this case, and will have a report later this evening from Thomas County.
