Woman Robs Key Bank In Hopes Of Going To Jail

Police arrested a 23-year-old Renton woman Tuesday after she robbed a bank and then waited for officers to arrive.

Robbers don't normally remain at the scene to talk with police, but one Renton woman broke the mold this week.

Police responded to a robbery at the Highlands branch of Key Bank on Tuesday, September 4 just before 4:30 p.m. 

Upon arrival, they found the 23-year-old suspected bank robber and Key Bank manager waiting in front of the building.

According to police, the woman entered the bank, demanded money and then told the teller that she would "wait outside for police."

Responding officers took the woman into custody without a struggle, and report that the robber advised Detectives she "had robbed the bank in hopes of going to jail."

The woman will be booked for investigation of robbery. The case is being referred to the King County Prosecuting Attorneys Office for ultimate determination of charges.

That's very cold and crude. Suppose you're wrong? Suppose she really needs attention? Hopefully, you won't EVER need the state. But, you don't know, do you?

If she needs help, I certainly hope this time that this isn't the case. We are living in dire circumstances. This lady may well be facing the direst of the dire. Hope she gets whatever help she needs and that family will surround her, if she has that luxury.
