Cranston police said that they have arrested 27-year-old Shannon Sampson, after being accused of robbing the bank twice in one month because she hadn’t earned enough money in tips.

She was charged with two counts of robbery. According to the police investigation, Sampson entered the bank around 12:00 p.m.

She gave the teller a note, demanding cash. She fled from the scene and checked into a hotel room. Police located her in the hotel room and found the stolen cash.
