Woman Who Robbed Banks in Newark, Harrison Sentenced to 7 Years in Federal Prison

Newark NJ Bank Robbery ConvictionA woman who confessed to robbing three banks in Newark and Harrison NJ was recently sentenced to 7 years in federal prison.

The 36-year-old suspect, who lived in Harrison, robbed two banks in Newark and one bank in Harrison in early 2014.

The first bank robbery occurred at a Valley National Bank in Harrison, New Jersey. The suspect reportedly stole $3,000 during that bank robbery.

The second bank robbery occurred at a Wells Fargo Bank in Newark, NJ. Less than a week later, the suspect robbed a Popular Community Bank in Newark.

The three bank robberies occurred during a three-week period.

According to authorities, the suspect followed the same modus operandi in all three robberies: she handed the teller a note demanding cash. The note also included a threat to use a gun.

The suspect was eventually apprehended after a multi-agency investigation that included police departments in Newark, Harrison, and Kearny, as well as special agents with the FBI.

The suspect later pleaded guilty to the armed robbery charges.

Now the suspect has been sentenced to hard time in federal prison. She recently appeared in U.S. District Court in Newark NJ for a sentencing hearing. The district court judge imposed the sentence, which will require the suspect to serve 7 years in prison. Additionally, the suspect will be required to serve 3 years of supervised release after her sentence ends.
