An Oak Island woman has been arrested and charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon.
According to Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office Public Information Officer Sgt. April Stanley, Karilyn Neely, 30, of 132 NE 16th St., Oak Island, was charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon.
Neely was arrested Monday afternoon for her alleged role in a robbery at Waccamaw Bank, 3178 Holden Beach Road, Supply around 4:48 p.m., Stanley said.
Neely allegedly entered the bank and demanded money from the cashier behind the counter, Stanley said. During the alleged robbery, Neely pointed to her hip, insinuating she had a weapon on her.
Neely left the bank with an undisclosed amount of money. She left in a 2010 gold Chevrolet Tahoe, Stanley said.
About 25 minutes after the bank’s alarm sounded, sheriff’s office units conducted a felony traffic stop on Stone Chimney Road near Clam Bay, where Neely was arrested without incident.
Neely was taken to the Brunswick County Detention Center, and placed on a $100,000 secured bond.
