PORTLAND — The Portland woman accused of robbing a bank and then creating a police standoff was released today from the hospital.

Jill Polley, 34, of 1808 Forest Avenue was transferred from Maine Medical Center to the Cumberland County Jail where her bail has been set at $100,000 cash or $500,000 property.

Polley, who has been charged with robbery, endangering the welfare of a child, and creating a police standoff, is scheduled to make her initial court appearance on Wednesday.

Police allege Polley robbed the Norway Savings Bank on Congress Street last Saturday. When police went to Polley’s Forest Avenue home on Sunday after receiving a tip that she might have been the robber, she created a six-hour-long standoff, refusing at first to relinquish custody of her 5-month-old baby.

During the standoff, Polley threatened to kill herself with a gun. The child was not harmed, but Polley had to be hospitalized at Maine Medical Center.
