From U.S. Attorney's Office
U.S. Department of Justice, Western District of Kentucky
BOWLING GREEN, KY (Wed 1 Feb 2017) - A Simpson County, KY,, woman pleaded guilty Monday, January 30, 2017, in United States District Court, before District Court Judge Greg N. Stivers, to a single count of bank robbery announced United States Attorney John E. Kuhn, Jr.
According to the plea agreement, Patricia Lamar Brewer, 48, admitted to robbing the Citizens First Bank located at 1200 South Main Street, in Franklin, Kentucky, of $43,100 at approximately 9:30amCT, on July 30, 2012.
Further, Brewer admitted to wearing eye-glasses, a hat, and a wig and handing a teller a threatening note stating:
"Don't call cops or set off any alarms be calm we are watching you we have this ladys child if she don't do what we say she will die and her daughter and everyone in this bank 80,000 dollars unmarked, untraceable bills if she is not out here in 5 min she will die along with her daughter and everyone in this bank we are watching you now so hurry now if you want to live."
Brewer was previously convicted of robbing a bank in Panama City Beach, Florida, using a similar disguise and note. Evidence gathered from that robbery led FBI to Brewer and the Kentucky bank robbery.
Brewer remains in federal custody awaiting sentencing on May 2, 2017, at 10:30amCT, before District Judge Stivers in Bowling Green.
If convicted at trial, Brewer could have been sentenced to a 20-year maximum term of imprisonment, fined $250,000 and served a three-year term of supervised release.
This case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney David Weiser and is being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
