SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -

Police say they've arrested a 22-year-old woman they believe robbed two banks in the last week.

Charlotte Willenzik was arrested on Wednesday for allegedly robbing a bank in Phoenix on Sunday night and a Chase Bank on Monday night.

After releasing surveillance photos to the public, police say they received multiple tips identifying Willenzik.

Police say they found Willenzik at her grandparents' home in Cave Creek. They searched her room and found most of the cash taken from both robberies.

Detectives say she admitted to both crimes and said she did it to support her drug habit.

Willenzik was booked into jail and faces charges of robbery, dangerous drug possession/use and drug paraphernalia possession/use.

Witnesses say they Willenzik left one of the robberies in a gold sedan with another person, but no other suspects have been found.
