MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- A 23-year-old Minnesota woman accused of robbing five banks within a few weeks has been sentenced to 3 1/2 years in federal prison.

Ranya Al-Huthaili of Roseville was sentenced Wednesday. She also was ordered to pay restitution to all the banks.

Al-Huthaili earlier pleaded guilty to robbing the Dairy State Bank in Menomonie, Wisconsin, on Sept. 9, 2013. She also admitted robbing another bank in Wisconsin and three in Minnesota.

Prosecutors say in all five robberies, Al-Huthaili walked into the banks, handed the teller a note demanding money and took off with more than $20,000 in total.

She was arrested on the day of the Menomonie robbery outside Rosedale Shopping Center after buying a laptop with the stolen money.
