Pulling off the perfect bank heist isn’t as easy as the movies make it seem, especially when the robber takes aim at five banks – in the space of three weeks.
This week, a 23-year-old Saudi-U.S. woman has been accused of doing just that.
“She has been charged with bank robbery [and] telling the teller that she had a gun. She took $2,350,” said Nadia Bilbassy-Charters, an Al Arabiya correspondent in Washington.
Huthaili stole $2,300 from the Wisconsin bank. However, the money’s identification markings led police to a shopping mall in Minneapolis where she bought a computer, the correspondent confirmed.
On Sept. 12, Huthaili was charged in federal court with robbing the Dairy State Bank on Sept. 9 in Menomonie, Wisconsin, the last of the heists she’s accused of carrying out.
Rau wrote that the defendant has acknowledged robbing four of the banks, while surveillance images from the robberies showed her wearing big black sunglasses.SHOW MORE
