MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- A registered nurse has pleaded guilty to a bank robbery in the Memphis suburb of Corodova.
Sheri Ann Svgdik will be sentenced June 5. She is free on $10,000 bond.
Police say the 48-year-old nurse entered Renasant Bank last August and handed the teller a note that said she had a butcher knife and wanted $20,000, explaining that no one would be hurt if she gave her the money.
Authorities say the teller gave her the money before pressing a silent alarm. A customer followed her out of the bank and got a description of her car and tag number.
Police say when they stopped her later that day, she had the crumpled note in her hand and told officers she committed the crime.
The money was recovered.
