A middle-aged woman allegedly went on a three-day crime spree last week that included several bank robberies and one carjacking.
At around 11:20 a.m. on July 12, a Woodside man left his 2010 Chrysler idling as he went to drop something off at his residence. It was at this point that Manhattan resident Jacqueline Healy, 41, allegedly jumped into the driver’s seat and made off with her new getaway car.
She allegedly used this car to rob several banks including a Capital One branch and the Cross County Federal Savings Bank in Middle Village and an HSBC branch on Queens Boulevard in Forest Hills.
She allegedly attempted to rob a Citibank on 71st Avenue as well, however, when she slipped the teller a note demanding money, the teller walked away from the window and Healy allegedly ran away.
Healy was arrested July 14 when the stolen vehicle was spotted in front of a motel in Jamaica.
According to Queens District Attorney Richard Brown, “she now faces a lengthy prison sentence as penalty for her unauthorized withdrawls.”
Healy is currently held on $120,000 bail, faces up to seven years in prison if convicted and is scheduled to appear in court on July 29.
