Maricopa Police Department arrested a woman during its investigation of Thursday’s bank robbery in conjunction with the FBI. 

Officers responded to Chase Bank, 21650 N. John Wayne Pkwy., Thursday on reports of a robbery, according to police spokesperson Monica Williams. 

While MPD has not shared details of what exactly happened in the bank, the department arrested 29-year-old Tiffany S. Bish at a gas station just down the street from the bank. 

“Bish was contacted while officers canvassed the area surrounding Chase Bank following the bank robbery,” Williams said. 

Bish allegedly gave officers a fake name and age before cops told her she was being detained for false reporting. Bish allegedly tried to flee before an officer grabbed her by the arm and told her she was under arrest. Bish allegedly pulled away from the officer before she was tackled to the ground and handcuffed. 

A police records check of Bish showed she was wanted for a felony probation violation warrant out of California, with a bond of $75,000. 

Bish was booked on two misdemeanor charges of false reporting and resisting arrest. She faces one year in jail. 

The reported bank robbery remains under investigation by MPD and the FBI.
