ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) - A California woman who pleaded guilty to charges connected with “Bombshell Bandit” bank robberies in three states has been sentenced to more than five years in federal prison.

Sandeep Kaur (KOOR) of Riverside was sentenced to 66 months at a court hearing in southern Utah Tuesday and ordered to repay thousands of dollars.

Prosecutors say the 24-year-old earned the nickname by threatening to set off bombs during robberies, though she also wore glamorous disguise of a wig and large sunglasses.

The Spectrum newspaper of St. George reports (http://bit.ly/1aI2ZY2) that Kaur pleaded guilty in January to four charges connected to robberies last summer in Valencia, California; San Diego; Lake Havasu City, Arizona; and St. George, Utah.

Defense attorney Jay Winward has said Kaur wants to move forward.
