Authorities have arrested a suspect in the robbery of an Arvest bank in a northwest Oklahoma City Wal-Mart, Friday morning.

It happened at about 11:30 a.m. at the Arvest Bank located inside Wal-Mart at 7800 N.W. Expressway in Oklahoma City. According to the FBI, a woman walked into the Wal-Mart and approached the teller counter at the bank. She then told the teller to "put the money in the bag" and implied she had a gun.

The teller complied and placed the money in a white plastic Wal-Mart shopping bag.

The suspect got away with an undisclosed amount of money and left Wal-Mart. She was last seen entering the driver's side of a silver, 2-door Chevrolet Monte Carlo, which was parked in front of a business to the east of the Wal-Mart store.

The Oklahoma FBI later identified the suspect as 34-year-old Ardis Anne Glover. 

Ardis was arrested at her home in the 7800 block of Hanover Way in Oklahoma City at about 4:30 p.m. by Oklahoma City police officers and FBI agents.

Surveillance photos of the suspect's vehicle were circulated to all on-duty officers. They located the vehicle following a thorough search, which led to the arrest of Glover.

Evidence related to the bank robbery was recovered at the time of Glover's arrest, according to the FBI.

Glover was transported to the Grady County Jail, where she will be held until her initial appearance in court.

No one was injured during the robbery.
