BELTON — A woman who police said robbed a number of stores and an ATM machine in Killeen was indicted on a charge of evading arrest with a vehicle by a Bell County grand jury on Wednesday.

Kristemm Devonna Henry faces a charge of evading arrest in a vehicle after police connected her to a string of robberies in a stolen pickup truck.

Police in early December were dispatched to the Star Mart in the 5500 block of Bunny Trail in Killeen when the store manager watched through a live video feed a silver truck back into the front of the store.

On the video, the manager watched four people enter the store, steal an ATM machine and take cigarettes from behind the counter, according to the affidavit.

In another incident in December, officers were sent to a burglary call in the 4000 block of Watercrest Road. When they arrived, there was broken glass everywhere and a sledgehammer next to the cash register.

Video footage showed a silver pickup truck backed into the store before three people hopped out with garbage bags and began to steal things. From the video, an officer noticed part of a license plate number.

Later, another officer watched a silver Chevy Malibu speed by and drive through a stop sign.

When the officer pulled that car over, Henry was found as the driver, and there were several boxes of cigarettes in the back seat as well as packages of unopened shirts in the back, according to the affidavit.
