News Three has obtained new information about the woman who allegedly held up a Bryan bank last week.

Court documents state Leola Maxey scoped out the Texas Enterprise Bank on West Villa Maria days before the heist.

Last Thursday, police say Maxey acted like she was going to cash a check, but instead handed a teller a note demanding money.

The teller told police the note said quote, "Give me all the money that you can give me that will fit in this bag. I have a gun. Don't push any buttons or anything."

Maxey walked away with the cash, but was soon arrested after a patrol officer recognized the 35-year-old from a witness's description.

Court documents state the officer dealt with Maxey several times and knew she used to work at First National Bank until she was accused of embezzlement.

The documents also state that Maxey lives close to the bank she's accused of robbing.

Police say when they pulled Maxey over, they found evidence in her car that linked her to the robbery.

She has been charged with aggravated robbery and remains in jail on a $150,000 bond.
