Woman is accused of robbing 2 banks in Arizona

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Authorities say a woman is in custody on suspicion of robbing banks in Scottsdale and Phoenix in consecutive days.

Scottsdale police say 22-year-old Charlotte Willenzik was arrested Wednesday at her grandparents' home in Cave Creek.

Police say they recovered most of the cash taken in both robberies.

They say Willenzik is suspected of robbing a bank in Phoenix on Sunday and Chase Bank branch in Scottsdale on Monday.

Police say witnesses and tips led them to Willenzik.

They say she allegedly confessed to the robberies, claiming she needed the money to support a drug habit.

Authorities didn't immediately know Thursday whether Willenzik has a lawyer yet.
