Missing Poplar Bluff Woman Arrested in Florida following Bank Robbery

POPLAR BLUFF, MO (KAIT) - Butler County authorities were looking into a missing one-person report earlier this week, when they found the Poplar Bluff woman they were searching for...in a Florida jail cell.

Donna Sue Bynum, 40, allegedly attempted to rob the Bank of America near Seaworld in Orlando on Friday.  According to the Orlando Sentinal newspaper, the southeast Missouri woman entered the bank armed with a pump shotgun and making jokes about President Bush before telling a teller, "This is a stick-up."  She was immediately arrested as she left the bank, charged with attempted robbery with a firearm, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and false imprisonment.

Butler County Sheriff Mark Dobbs said a concerned family member contacted his department on Monday, asking for help in trying to locate the woman. 

Bynum was taken to a Florida hospital for observation.
