Police say they've caught the woman who robbed a Town of Chenango Bank.

Broome County Sheriff's deputies responded to reports of a robbery at this HSBC bank on Upper front street just before 5 p.m.

They say 53 year old Alicia Mitchell of Chenango Bridge gave a teller a note that demanded money and said she had a gun.

Mitchell then left the bank on foot.

During the search, a deputy spotted a woman getting into a cab about 5 blocks away.

He stopped the cab, and found Mitchell inside with several thousand dollars in cash.

No gun was recovered during the investigation.

Mitchell's charged with 3rd degree robbery.
