TAYLOR MILL, Ky (FOX19) - A woman admitted to robbing a Fifth Third Bank in Taylor Mill Saturday morning, according to the Taylor Mill Police Department.

Officers say Tamara Jan Thompson, 45, walked inside the bank in the 5000 block of Old Taylor Mill Road at 9:03 a.m. and handed the teller a note.

The note told the teller to keep her hands visible, give cash with no dye-packs and “no one would get hurt.”

Police say Thompson fled on foot to a wooded area behind the bank with a backpack filled with cash and a change of clothes.

She was found with the backpack while pushing a bike on Redbud Drive, a street near the bank, said police.

Officers say she is charged with robbery and is being held at the Kenton County Detention Center.
