(Scarborough, Maine) A 28-year-old mother-of-two from Waterville, Jamilee Kus, has been accused of robbing a bank in South Portland last Thursday night.
Kus faces charges of Class A robbery and Class C theft.
Sgt. Steve Webster of the South Portland Police Department said Kus’ children, a girl and a boy, about 10 and 4 years old, were in the white 2000 Ford Explorer that police stopped.[…]Police called Kus' behavior "brazen and calculating.”
South Portland Police allege that Kus, who had her long dark hair tied up in a bun under a New York Yankees baseball cap, walked into the bank around 7 p.m. Thursday.
Surveillance photos released to local media made it difficult to determine whether she was a man or woman. She was wearing a gray hooded sweat shirt.
Prior to the robbery, Webster said, Kus had been shopping with her boyfriend, who is from New York City, at the Maine Mall.
Kus told him that she had to run into the bank to get some cash but never mentioned to him what transpired inside.
