NATIONAL CITY, Calif. — Police in National City made a quick arrest after they say a woman passed a demand note to a teller at a Wells Fargo on Highland Avenue.

Police responded to the bank around 3:30 Friday after receiving calls about the woman’s demand. National City Police Lt. David Bavencoff said officers set up a perimeter around the branch before making their way inside and arresting the woman.
