A Fremont woman is in custody at the San Mateo County Jail, accused of robbing at least seven banks across the Bay Area.

Police say Lynette Broussard was arrested in San Francisco's Hunter's Point Tuesday. She was dubbed the "Construction Worker Robber" because she wore a hard hat and reflective vest during each of the holdups.

Investigators say she used a note to rob banks in San Mateo, Santa clara and Alameda Counties.
