Meighan Marie McSherry, a resident of New York City, has been charged with first degree robbery and second degree larceny after she allegedly robbed a bank in Greenwich, Conn., according to police.

Officers stopped and arrested McSherry on Thursday after identifying her car as the one that the suspect was driving. Witnesses also positively identified McSherry as the woman they saw robbing the bank, officials said.

According to police, McSherry walked into a Wells Fargo Bank on Thursday afternoon and gave a note to the bank teller that demanded money. The note also claimed that she was carrying a gun, and she left the bank with the money.

Police found money from the robbery in McSherry’s car, officials said.

McSherry appeared in court Friday and is being held on $250,000 bond, which she was not able to pay, authorities said.
