OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A 24-year-old woman has been given more than five years in prison for robbing a suburban Omaha bank branch last July.

In December a jury found Shantoria Valentine-Deguenon, of Omaha, guilty of bank robbery. On Friday prosecutors said Valentine-Deguenon was sentenced to 63 months in prison and three years of supervised release after she leaves federal custody.

Prosecutors say she walked into a Wells Fargo branch in Ralston in July, gave a note to tellers that said she had a bomb. She also yelled out the same threat.

Officers say she had more than $1,200 of the bank’s money with her when she was arrested a short time later at the Ralston Middle School parking lot.
