Rockford woman admits to robbing bank, putting money in bra

ROCKFORD (AP) — A Rockford woman has pleaded guilty to robbing a bank and stashing the money in her bra.

Federal prosecutors in northern Illinois say 32-year-old LaToya Shaunta Burrows pleaded guilty Monday. She admitted to robbing Associated Bank on March 20 as part of a plea agreement. Prosecutors say Burrows entered the bank and handed a teller a note that said: "Put the money in the bag and nobody will get hurt."

However, the teller didn't have a bag. Burrows grabbed the cash and stuffed the money into her bra before walking out of the bank. Rockford police arrested her nearby shortly after the robbery.

Burrows faces up to 20 years in prison, a $250,000 fine, full restitution and five years of supervised release.
