Police said Jamese Christine Queen was charged with two counts of robbery over $1,000 and one count of attempted robbery. Police allege the robberies occurred on Sept. 13 and Sept. 28 and the Bank of Glen Burnie, located at 101 Crain Highway South in Glen Burnie. In each case, the suspect handed a teller a note demanding money before fleeing the scene.

The attempted robbery, police said, allegedly took place around noon at the Bank of Glen Burnie, located at 740 Stevenson Rd. in Severn. In that case, police said, the suspect entered the business wearing a green baseball cap.

The suspect then approached a teller, who asked her to remove her cap.  Police said the suspect then presented a note demanding money, but fled the bank prior to receiving any. 

Police added that the suspect was seen driving away in a black Hyundai sedan and an employee was able to obtain the vehicle registration plate information

According to police, at approximately 4:09 p.m. on Oct. 5, an officer located the Hyundai unoccupied in the 200 block of Woodhill Drive in Glen Burnie. Additional Officers and Detectives responded to the area and eventually located Queen in an apartment. She was taken into custody without incident. The apartment and vehicle were subsequently searched and evidence from all three incidents was located.

Queen's arrest came in part as a result of work between county police and the FBI.
