PASCO COUNTY --
A woman accused of robbing a bank with a toddler in tow has been identified as 24-year-old Cherilyn Jannette Lopez.
The robbery was reported at 2:15 p.m. at Region's Bank, located at 7512 S.R. 52 in Port Richey.
Here's what deputies say happened:
The woman left a 3-year-old boy in a van while she went in the bank.
Somehow, the child managed to get out of the car and was seen in the parking lot. The woman retrieved the boy, went back in the bank, and robbed it, deputies say.
The suspect left with an undisclosed amount of cash.
Shortly after the robbery, deputies say the suspect then dropped the boy off at a nearby daycare center.
The suspect was later pulled over at S.R. 52 and Athena Boulevard driving a silver Chrysler minivan and taken into custody.
Pasco Sheriff Chris Nocco said Lopez is addicted to prescription pain pills. He said she confessed to robbing the bank.
Lopez faces two charges, bank robbery and child neglect. Because of the child neglect charge, deputies won't reveal what the relationship is between Lopez and the boy. She is scheduled to make her first court appearance today.
The boy is fine. Investigators said he will be placed with family members.
She drove a minivan. I hope she had a toddler car seat...............
If you feel compelled to rob something, doll, make it a grocery store. You will get more cash, the LEO response time is slower and you don’t have to deal with the FBI as an investigatory and pursuit body.
To do Tuesday:
-take alvin to daycare
-pick up meds
-call bail bond guy
I think you left out the most important piece of advice: Drop your kid off at daycare BEFORE the robbery, not after. :)
Take your daughter to work day?
That rates a BJ Clinton post-POTUS pardon
She's young, blonde and pretty. I had to give her a break on something. It's a character flaw of mine.
It could be just a baby sitter. I didn’t read anywhere in the article that identified any relationship with the young woman.
I have heard that daycare is expensive. /s
Yeah, could be Zenaida Gonzalez................
Damn good thing this didn’t happen in Georgia where the police are so vigilant they will bust a little girl’s lemonade stand.
California and Florida,
Why do MOST of the crazies from across
America and the world go to those two places???
Sun, fun, and other crazies just like them.....
That’s the tip off that she is NOT the babysitter. They don’t reveal the relationship to avoid identifying a minor because they ARE related.
If they are unrelated, they’ll just flat out say so.
Dollars to donuts, it was the child’s mommy.
