A 45-year-old woman has been arrested and charged with three bank robberies on Long Island.

Suffolk County police say Jean Coughlin was arrested in Carle Place on Tuesday after she handed a Chase Bank teller a handwritten note demanding money and threatening violence.

Police say the Bay Shore resident also was charged with two other bank robberies committed in the county earlier this year.

They say Jesse Steward, the getaway driver in Tuesday's alleged robbery, also was arrested.

Both women were charged with robbery.
