Woman arrested on suspicion of robbing six banks

Police have arrested a woman who allegedly robbed six banks within 24 hours over the weekend. Nannette Louise Perkins, 40, was arrested Sunday evening on suspicion of robbery, after police received a tip and located Perkins at her Taylorsville residence. She is being held in the Salt Lake County Jail on several counts of second-degree felony robbery.

Investigators say Perkins robbed the first bank around 1:15 Friday, after slipping a bank teller a note demanding money. She is also accused of robbing another four banks within ninety minutes in Sandy and Cottonwood Heights. The case is under investigation by joint members of the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force.

According to court records, Perkins pleaded guilty to retail theft, a third-degree felony, in June 2013, and two counts of attempted unlawful possession of a financial card in March 2013. In January 2013 she admitted to criminal mischief, a class B misdemeanor; as well as theft and unlawful possession of a financial transaction card, third-degree felonies.
