Jamese Queen, charged with robbery and theft, and attempted robbery in Anne Arundel County

GLEN BURNIE, Va. (WUSA9) -- A woman has been arrested for three bank robberies in Anne Arundel County.

Anne Arundel County police say 47-year-old Jamese Christine Queen was initially linked to the robberies because of her vehicle. According to police, her black Hyundai sedan was spotted fleeing all three scenes.

The first two bank robberies happened on Sept. 13 and Sept. 28 at the Bank of Glen Burnie at 101 Crain Highway South. In each case a woman walked in and handed the teller a note demanding money. The woman would then flee with the cash.

Police say in the first robbery, the woman was described as 
"a black female, possibly in her mid 50's; approximately 5'2"-5'3", 130-140 pounds." In the second robbery, the woman was described as "a black female in her 40's or 50's, wearing a green baseball cap, a black and gray jacket and black pants."

Each time, the robber fled in a black Hyundai sedan.

On Oct. 5 at approximately 12:07 p.m., a woman wearing a green baseball walked into the Bank of Glen Burnie at 740 Stevenson Road in Severn, say police.  The woman approached a teller, who asked her to take off her cap. The suspect then gave her a note demanding money, but fled the bank before receiving any money. The woman fled in a black Hyundai sedan and a bank employee was able to obtain the vehicle registration plate information, say police. 

Police later found that the description of registered owner of the car, 47-year-old Jamese Christine Queen, matched that of the female suspect. An investigation then confirmed that Jamese Queen was the suspect in all three robberies, say police.

That afternoon, an officer spotted the empty car in the 200 block of Woodhill Drive in Glen Burnie, say police. Officers  then found Queen in an apartment and took her into custody.

Police say they found evidence from all three robberies in the car and apartment.

Queen is now charged with robbery and theft over $1,000 in the September 13th robbery, robbery and theft over $1,000 in the September 28th robbery and attempted robbery in the October 5th attempted robbery.
