Suspects Arrested in Connection with Mableton Bank Robbery

An armed robber on Feb. 9 demanded money from the tellers at the Best Bank inside the Kroger at 4875 Floyd Rd.

A Marietta woman and an Austell man were recently arrested in connection with a Feb. 9 armed robbery at a Mableton bank.

Rachel Zevanith Levy and Ralfeal Anton White each face felony robbery charges, according to the Marietta Daily Journal as well as online Cobb County Sheriff's Office records. Levy also faces a felony theft by taking charge.

Just before 12:15 p.m. Feb. 9, a black woman wearing a green pullover hooded jacket and a dark coat approached tellers at the Best Bank inside the Kroger at 4875 Floyd Rd., Officer Mike Bowman, the spokesman for the Cobb County Police Department, said at the time.

"She then produced a demand note and made verbal demands for the money as she indicated that she was armed with a handgun," he said. "The employees complied with the demands of the perpetrator and after receiving an undisclosed amount of cash, she fled in an unknown direction."

White, 25, was arrested the same day, according to online records. It was an interview with him that led authorities to Levy three days after the robbery, according to the MDJ. 

White, the alleged getaway driver, remains at the Cobb County Adult Detention Facility on a probation violation and warrants from Fulton County, according to the MDJ.

Levy, 22, is no longer in custody. She was released from jail on Feb. 14 on a $15,000 bond.

Released on $15,000 bail 5 days after the robbery? Does anyone else see anything VERY WRONG with this picture?

It was most likely her first offense. Don't be surprised if she gets little or no time at all. I'm just saying

Wow, first offense or not a felony bank robbery should carry a minimum 10 year sentence.

Hey folks remember the Barbie Bandits, whom the media portrayed as cutsie folklore,they did not get 10 year, not even five. HOw about the Barefoot bandid, who now has a movie deal. Also his sentence certainly did not equate to the extent of his crime. Why are THEY called bandidt rather than armed robbers . WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE? Can you see why our prisons are briming with young minority adults. No one justifies wrong, however we all should be honest enough to question the obvious.
