  • A woman who allegedly entered a Medford Bank of America, demanded money and fled with cash in June has been arrested in Arizona, police reported.
    Amy Joy Cook, 39, was arrested by the Pima County Sheriff's Department Friday in Sahuarita — 50 miles south of Tucson — on charges of vehicle theft and drug possession. She will be extradited back to Oregon after her charges in Arizona have been resolved.
    "It's quite interesting it took this long to get her picked up with her criminal lifestyle," said Lt. Mike Budreau of the Medford police. "Finally her luck ran out."
    Police say Cook entered the Bank of America on 790 Stevens St. just before 5 p.m. on June 5, approached a teller and slipped a note across the counter demanding money.
    Budreau said no weapon was displayed.
    Detectives issued a nationwide warrant for Cook's arrest for violating her parole on a previous bank robbery conviction in January 2010, a crime for which she was sentenced to 39 months in jail.
