TAYLORSVILLE, UT (KUTV/CNN) - A woman suspected of robbing six banks in her pajamas is now in custody.

Police in Utah said the woman passed a note to the tellers at the banks demanding the money, but did not display a weapon.

It was surveillance pictures, police said, that helped lead police to her apartment complex and landed Nanette Perkins in jail.

The 40-year-old suspect is accused of robbing six banks across Salt Lake County.

Her face and, in some cases, her pajama pants were in full view of the cameras.

After plastering images around, a tip came in on Sunday and officers immediately went over and took her into custody.

Police haven't said how much money she got away with, but her boyfriend told police he received $4,200 from her in cash.

Lt. Brian Looker of the Unified Police Department said the call came right in time.

"Without capture, her crime spree would have continued so it was important to put an end to it," Looker said.

Court records also show Perkins has a history of charges including theft, unlawful use of a transaction card and identity theft.
