GOODYEAR, AZ - A woman arrested by police is accused of robbing a bank Wednesday morning in Goodyear.
Goodyear police said Thursday that 29-year-old Alegria Perez is being held on suspicion of robbery and lawful flight from a law enforcement vehicle.
Police received a 911 call shortly after 11 a.m. Wednesday about a robbery in progress at a Wells Fargo Bank.
A witness says a woman claimed she was an explosive device on her body and fled the scene after the robbery in a minivan.
That vehicle was later stopped by police and the suspect was arrested.
Police say a robot was used to search the vehicle but no explosives were found.
Perez's hometown was unclear Thursday and authorities didn't immediately know Thursday if she has a lawyer.
