PROVO, Utah –  Officials have arrested a woman accused of robbing a Provo bank Tuesday afternoon.

Provo officers said 24-year-old Freeda Coleman, of Richfield, is accused of going to the Chase Bank on S. University Ave. near 1200 S. with a note demanding money.

Bank clerks told police the note stated she wanted cash, $100 bills.

Officials said Coleman left the bank in a car a man was driving.

Police caught up to the pair and arrested Coleman for robbery.

Officers said most of the money stolen has been returned.

Earlier Tuesday police arrested suspects accused in the previous hostile takeover-style bank robberies.
