"What is wrong with her eyes?" one commenter posted.

"How does a person have all black eyeballs," another wrote.

One suggested that her eyeballs had been tattooed -- a procedure called "corneal tattooing."

Varn and 23-year-old Mikael Robinson were arrested at a home. She and another woman were brought out of the residence and detained, while Robinson was taken into custody after the SWAT team entered the house, according to the sheriff's office.

Authorities found an allegedly stolen pistol, ammunition and cash in the home, according to the Facebook post.

Varn faces charges of armed robbery, kidnapping and malicious injury to personal property, kidnapping, possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime and possession of a stolen pistol.
