Limousine Client Robs Drive Through Bank

Posted on May 23, 2007 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Evonne Maurice apparently wanted to get away in style. The 22-year-old pleaded guilty in federal court to trying to rob a bank at a drive-up window while traveling in a hired limousine.

Authorities said Maurice had a limousine take her to a Citizens Bank branch in Cranston and told the driver she needed to withdraw cash to pay for the ride. Then she walked up to the window and handed the teller an envelope with a note demanding money and saying there were two bombs in the bank.

The teller triggered an alarm, and Maurice got back in the limo without any money and was driven away. The driver was unaware of the December 1, 2005, robbery attempt, prosecutors said.

Maurice was arrested in Tampa, Fla. Prosecutors said she told police there that she robbed banks to pay her and her boyfriend's drug-dealing debts.
