MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - After threatening to commit suicide, a woman wanted in connection with a Martinsburg bank robbery agreed Thursday to turn herself in to police in Owings Mills, Md., police said.

Kerri Lynn Davis, 30, of Winchester, Va., surrendered to police at a Giant grocery store after "a lengthy conversation" on the phone with Martinsburg Police Department Detective Sgt. George Swartwood, police said.

An arrest warrant has been issued charging Davis with bank robbery.

Police have been seeking Davis since Monday, when at around 1:30 p.m., a woman walked into First United Bank on Foxcroft Avenue in Martinsburg. The robber gave a teller a note that demanded money and indicated she had an explosive device, police said.

The robber left after receiving an undisclosed amount of cash.

On Thursday, Davis called someone in Winchester and told them she was contemplating suicide, police said. That person then contacted the Martinsburg Police Department, where officers were able to determine the phone number from where Davis called, according to a press release.

Davis turned herself in without incident to officers with the Baltimore City Police Department at about 3:30 p.m. at the grocery store, near a place in Owings Mills where she had been staying, police said.

She is being held in Maryland, awaiting extradition to West Virginia, Swartwood said.
