Bank Robber Sentenced 22 May 14

A 23-year-old Minnesota woman accused of robbing five banks within a few weeks has been sentenced to 3 1/2 years in federal prison.

Ranya Al-Huthaili of Roseville was sentenced Wednesday. She also was ordered to pay restitution to all the banks.

Al-Huthaili had earlier pleaded guilty to robbing two banks in Wisconsin in 2013 as well as three in Minnesota, including a bank in Cologne.

Prosecutors say that in all five robberies, Al-Huthaili walked into the banks with big black sunglasses on, handed the teller a note demanding money and took off with more than $20,000 overall.

She was arrested outside the Rosedale Shopping Center after buying a laptop with the stolen money.
