(Harrisonville) A 78-year-old woman with two prior bank robbery convictions is facing new charges after authorities alleged she gave a cashier a note that said, “I didn’t mean to scare you.” , during a recent robbery in Missouri.

Bonnie Gooch is being held on $25,000 bail after being charged with one count of robbing or attempting to rob a financial institution Wednesday in Pleasant Hill, the Kansas City Star reports. No attorney is listed for her in online court records.

She was also convicted of robbing a California bank in 1977 and one in suburban Kansas City at Lee’s Summit in 2020. Her probation in the second robbery ended in November 2021.

Court documents filed in Cass County in the latest case said the flight note demanded “13,000 small bills,” adding “thank you, sorry, didn’t mean to scare you.” The surveillance camera also caught her banging on the counter, asking the cashier to hurry up, according to Cass County prosecutors.

She smelled strongly of alcohol when officers stopped her less than 2 miles away, with cash strewn across the floor of the car, prosecutors added.

“It’s just sad,” said Pleasant Hill Police Chief Tommy Wright, adding that the suspect had no misdiagnosis.
