CARY – A woman charged in connection with a bank robbery earlier this week at Cary Bank and Trust stole nearly $5,000, police said.

Judy A. Persfull, 56, previously of Capron and currently homeless, was charged Tuesday with the burglary and theft of items more than $500. She remains in the McHenry County Jail in lieu of posting 10 percent of her $75,000 bond.

Police arrived about 2:10 p.m. Tuesday at the bank, 60 E. Main St., after a report of a robbery. Preliminary investigations found that Persfull went into the bank, approached a teller and demanded cash. She placed a bag on the counter and fled after receiving the money. Persfull did not say she had a weapon, police said.

Persfull fled west on foot with about $4,881, according to a Cary police report. She was found about a block away at The Maple Tree Inn, a sports bar in Cary, according to the report.

She is expected to appear in court Friday before Judge James Cowlin.
