Rockford woman sentenced to 30 months for bank robbery

Posted:
ROCKFORD (WREX) -

The Rockford woman convicted of robbing the Associated Bank on North Main Street in March 2012 has been sentenced.

Latoya Shaunta Burrows was sentenced to 30 months in federal prison. She was indicted in April and pled guilty to bank robbery on October 29 of last year.

The written plea agreement states Burrows entered the bank just before 11:00 a.m. on March 20, 2012. She by-passed a line, and went directly to the counter, passing a teller a folded piece of paper reading "Put the money in the bag and nobody will get hurt."

The teller took cash out of the drawer, but informed Burrows he did not have a bag to put the cash into. Burrows then took the money, stuffed it into her bra, and walked out. She was arrested shortly afterward.
