HAMILTON TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) - Police in New Jersey have arrested a woman they believe robbed three banks armed only with a bright green handbag and a demand note.

Hamilton police Capt. James Stevens said that 42-year-old Josephine Sari, of Chesterfield, was arrested on Sunday.

He says several tips came in after police released photos showing a middle-aged woman dressed in black with a scarf on her head demanding money from tellers at banks Friday and Saturday morning. Police in Willingboro say they are preparing to charge her in a bank robbery there Friday.

Sari was being held on $200,000 cash bail. No one answered the phone at her home Monday morning.

It wasn’t immediately known how much money was stolen.

Willingboro police Lt. Christopher Vetter says Sari will also be charged for attempting to rob a store.
