Buffalo police arrested a 20-year-old woman Thursday in connection with a bank robbery on Wednesday and another one earlier this month.

Adlyn Marie Echevarria Robles was charged with Wednesday’s robbery at the M&T Bank at 709 Elmwood Ave. and a July 5 robbery at the M&T Bank at 1580 Hertel Ave.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Melissa Marangola said Robles passed notes to bank tellers claiming she had a bomb in her possession and was prepared to detonate it.

The bank robbery charges are the result of an investigation by Buffalo Police and the FBI.
