Her struggles appear to be continuing.

Green was booked into Houston County jail Tuesday morning after a woman robbed a Warner Robins convenience store and then burglarized at a city gas station.

Warner Robins police say that woman is Green.

It started just after midnight at Bi Lo, 1310 Green St. A woman with a gun entered the store and demanded money from the clerk, according to a Warner Robins police news release. After taking the money the suspect attempted to leave the store, but the clerk pressed an emergency button locking her in the store.

The suspect shot the glass out and ran, the news release states.

At about 5:23 a.m., officers were called to Citgo at 218 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in reference to a burglary. Someone broke the front door and entered the business.

When officers arrived, they found Ayniya Green inside the store, the news release states.

Green is charged with armed robbery and criminal damage to property.

During her interview in June, Green said she's been on pills since she was 13.

"When I woke up and was off the tube and I was sitting up, my pastor walked in and I could talk, I could speak to him," Green said in June about waking up from her coma.

Green says Rev. Dennis Harden of New Hope Baptist Church prayed over her and she had a revelation.

"It was like God was speaking through him like letting me know what I was doing was wrong, it’s time for you to change your life, so I told my pastor I want to get baptized," Green said.

Just three days after Green was lying on her deathbed, she was raised to a new life in Christ.

"If it wasn't for God—there wouldn't be no me right now," said Green in June. "I'm clean. I feel better."
