PHOENIX (AP) -- Police say they have arrested a former bank teller suspected of robbing three Phoenix-area banks since last Friday.

Phoenix police Sgt. Steve Martos said in a release that 25-year-old Danyelle Gerrie was taken into custody Thursday.

She is suspected in armed robberies that were reported at a Chase Bank, Compass Bank and Arizona Central Credit Union between Friday, Sept. 10, and Wednesday.

Police say Gerrie used a getaway vehicle during the robberies.

The driver of the vehicle, who police say was unaware of the bank robberies, has been booked on outstanding warrants.
