A 23-year-old Minnesota MUSLIM woman is accused of holding up five banks in three weeks, hiding her face under a hijab and big sunglasses. Ranya Al-Huthaili, of Roseville, was charged on September 12 with robbing the Dairy State Bank in Menomonie, Wisconsin â€“ the last of the string of heists sheâ€™s allegedly behind beginning August 15. The Saudi-U.S. woman was arrested on September 9 at Rosedale Shopping Center, after FBI agents traced marked notes she was handed at the Menomonie branch to her home. According to court documents in the Menomonie heist, Al-Huthaili gave the teller a note that read, â€˜I have a gun.â€™ She allegedly demanded money and the teller gave her $2,350, which included â€˜bait billsâ€™ that are marked so police can easily trace them, the Star Tribune reported.
