MADISON COUNTY, Ill. (KMOX) – A 20-year-old woman from Springfield Illinois now faces charges in connection with three bank robberies – including one last Thursday at the U.S. Bank in Glen Carbon, Illinois.

Adrianna Frye-Williamson is accused of entering the U.S. Bank branch along Hwy. 159 on Feb. 9th and handing the teller a note demanding cash – making her getaway on a bicycle.

Edwardsville police say the FBI, along with detectives from the Glen Carbon, Edwardsville and Springfield police departments, took Frye-Williamson into custody less than 24-hours later.

Frye-Williamson, who’s being held without bond in the St. Clair County jail, has also been charged with two other bank robberies – one at the National Bank in Edwardsville on January 20th and a bank in Springfield on January 12th.

If convicted on all charges, Frye-Williamson faces up to 60 years in prison.
