Police: Threat alleged by Pa. clown robber suspect

BETHLEHEM TWP., Pa. - August 6, 2010

Police say 43-year-old Carolyn Anne Williams of Bethlehem Township was arrested about five minutes after a woman threatened Bethlehem bank tellers by saying she had a bomb and fled with more than $7,100. Police say officers caught Williams nearby changing out of the clown suit and wig in her car.

According to court records released Monday, the robber told tellers that her two children would be killed if she didn't bring back enough cash. Williams was charged with felony bank robbery, theft by unlawful taking and receiving stolen property. She remains in custody and it's unclear whether she has an attorney.
