Dearborn Heights — A Detroit woman stands accused of taking part in two successful bank robberies this month. In one case, law enforcement officials allege she claimed to have a bomb.

Candace Glover-Carter, 35, was arraigned Friday morning at 20th District Court in Dearborn Heights before Judge David Turfe. She is due back in court on Feb. 3 for a probable cause hearing, and will have a preliminary exam on Feb. 10 in front of Judge Mark Plawecki.

In the first bank robbery of which Glover-Carter is accused, a Comerica Bank on the 4400 block of Telegraph was hit on Jan. 14, just before 4 p.m. Glover-Carter claimed she had a bomb before demanding money from the teller, police said. The teller complied, handing over more than $4,000. In that incident, Glover-Carter is charged with one count of bank robbery and one count of armed robbery.

A similar story played out on the morning of Jan. 19 at Dearborn Federal Savings Bank on the 4100 block of Telegraph, and the same charges were pressed in that case. Glover-Carter is accused of making away with $4,000 in that case too.
