A Rockford woman faces federal charges in the March 20 robbery of the Associated Bank at 612 North Main Street.
Latoya Shaunta Burrows, 31, was indicted on Tuesday by a federal grand jury. She is accused of entering the bank just before 11 a.m. on March 20, approaching the counter, and handing the teller a piece of paper that read, "Put money in the bag and no one will get hurt." The teller removed cash from his drawer but told Burrows that there was no bag for him to put the cash into. Burrows then allegedly grabbed the money from his hand, stuffed it into her bra, and walked out of the bank. She was arrested shortly afterward by Rockford Police.
The maximum potential penalty for her charges is 20 years in prison, a fine of up to $250,000, up to three years of supervised release after her imprisonment, and full restitution.
