American-Saudi woman, 23, ‘hid under Muslim hijab (headbag) and sunglasses to carry out five perfect bank robberies before she was caught.’
dailymail.co.uk (h/t The Opinionator) A 23-year-old Minnesota MUSLIM woman is accused of holding up five banks in three weeks, hiding her face under a hijab and big sunglasses. Ranya Al-Huthaili, of Roseville, was charged on September 12 with robbing the Dairy State Bank in Menomonie, Wisconsin – the last of the string of heists she’s allegedly behind beginning August 15.
The Saudi-U.S. woman was arrested on September 9 at Rosedale Shopping Center, after FBI agents traced marked notes she was handed at the Menomonie branch to her home.
According to court documents in the Menomonie heist, Al-Huthaili gave the teller a note that read, ‘I have a gun.’ She allegedly demanded money and the teller gave her $2,350, which included ‘bait bills’ that are marked so police can easily trace them, the Star Tribune reported.
