She put her hand underneath her shirt to insinuate that she had a weapon, which caused the employee to fear for her safety, according to police. No injuries were reported.

The federal indictment states Aurthur took $373 from the bank.

Aurthur initially was charged in Scott County District Court with third-degree robbery and third-degree theft. The charges were dismissed in October when the federal indictment was handed up.
