Police: Suspected serial robber confessed

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - A Lexington Police detective testified during a hearing Wednesday morning that a woman confessed to robbing four banks during a two-year span.

Investigators said Crystal Little, 29, committed the robberies, which began in 2010.

Detective Dawn Dunn said Little was read her Miranda rights twice and then admitted on tape to committing the robberies.

"Gave statements advising that she had committed four bank robberies and gave the locations and approximate dates of all four and the amount received at each robbery," said Dunn.

Little told detectives she was armed with a gun during two of the robberies, according to investigators.

Investigators said she wasn't armed during two others.

Little is charged with two counts of first-degree robbery for the alleged armed robberies. She faces two additional counts of second-degree robbery.

A friend of Little's was at Wednesday's hearing, however she declined to comment.

During Little's arraignment last week, a friend said Little had been under mounting financial stress.

Little was arrested Saturday, July 28, after police say she robbed the PNC Bank in Tates Creek Centre.

At the time of her arrest, Little was employed by the University of Kentucky as an administrative support associate in the office of research integrity.
