The Brunswick County Sheriff's Office arrested a woman in connection with a bank robbery earlier this evening.
Karilyn Neely, 30, of Oak Island was arrested about 5:15 p.m. and charged with one count of robbery with a dangerous weapon. She was being held on $100,000 bond at the Brunswick County Detention Facility Monday night.
Sheriff's officers responded to a robbery about 4:48 p.m. at the Waccamaw Bank at 3178 Holden Beach Road, Supply, N.C. The teller told police that a woman entered the bank and demanded money from the cashier behind the counter. According to the police report, the woman then pointed to her hip, insinuating she had a weapon.
The suspect then left the bank with an unknown amount of money, in a 2010 gold Chevy Tahoe. About 25 minutes after the bank alarm was reported, sheriff's officers stopped Neely's car on Stone Chimney Road near Clam Bay.
Never miss a local story.
Neely was arrested without incident, according to the report, and charged a few hors later.
More information will be posted as it becomes available.
