PROVO, Utah — A Utah woman is under arrest after police say a senior center was robbed at gunpoint.

The Daily Herald newspaper reports the woman was a recently fired employee who came to the door of the Elk Ridge Assisted Living Center dressed all in black early Wednesday morning.

Police say Becky Golly smeared shaving cream on a security camera, then demanded an employee open a medication storage box. When she couldn’t unlock the box, police say Golly took two employees’ backpacks and ran.

Investigators zeroed in on Golly after reviewing security tapes and talking with employees. Police say officers found her at home, and she acknowledged her involvement. They also found that she had used one of the employees’ debit cards to spend about $2,000 online.

No attorney was immediately listed for Golly.
