SPEARFISH, S.D. (AP) - A Belle Fourche woman accused of robbing a bank in Spearfish last spring has pleaded guilty in federal court.

The Black Hills Pioneer reports that 22-year-old Kaycee Teppo reached a plea agreement with prosecutors under which she would make restitution to Pioneer Bank and Trust.

Authorities say Teppo entered the bank on May 18 and gave a teller a note saying she had a gun and demanding money. She made off with $1,500 but turned herself in to authorities about 4 1/2 hours after the robbery.

Bank robbery carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
