UPDATE: Waterville woman remains in jail on bank robbery charges
SOUTH PORTLAND — A Waterville woman remained in Cumberland County Jail in Portland after making her initial court appearance Monday on robbery and theft charges.
Jamilee Kus, 28, was being held on $5,000 cash bail according to jail officials. She is charged with Class A robbery and Class C theft stemming from an alleged July 5 robbery at the TD Bank branch at 250 Maine Mall Road.
Kus appeared in Cumberland County Superior Court and did not answer to the charges before being returned to jail. Court officials said future court dates for the case have not been scheduled.
Police Sgt. Steven Webster said Kus was arrested by South Portland Police Department detectives during a traffic stop on the Maine Turnpike in Scarborough at approximately 1 a.m. on Sunday.
Webster said several agencies assisted in the investigation, including the Waterville Police Department and the Maine State Police.
Webster said Kus allegedly entered the bank at approximately 7 p.m. She did not display a weapon, but implied she was armed before tellers gave her about $2,000 cash.
Police said she was seen riding away from the scene in a white SUV that had been parked near a nearby Friendly's Ice Cream restaurant.
