A woman who allegedly intended to rob a Wells Fargo bank inside a grocery store didn't get very far after employees say they recognized her as the same person who'd robbed it last June.

Police told the Longmont Times-Call that Datha Nation, 64, is the same person who held up the bank June 9 with a note threatening that she would infect the teller with AIDS if they did not comply and give her cash.

Police say she got away with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Nation allegedly tried to rob the bank again in March and once more Monday, but left the bank without handing the teller her note when employees called police after recognizing her.

When police came, they found Nation in her car in the parking lot of the store. They also found a note in her car saying she wanted to rob the bank and asking the teller not to use a dye pack.

Nation was arrested and charged with two counts of attempted robbery and one count of aggravated robbery.
