Strip club dancer arrested for bank robbery twice in 1 month

February 21, 2016

COVENTRY, R.I. (AP) — Authorities say a dancer at a Providence strip club has been arrested in connection with a bank robbery for the second time in a month.

Police say 27-year-old Shannon Sampson, of Cranston, was apprehended Saturday at the Warwick Mall.

She’s charged in connection with a robbery earlier Saturday at a Citizens Bank branch in Coventry.

Police say a woman entered the bank around noon and passed the teller a note before leaving with “a small amount” of money.

Sampson was arrested Feb. 10 in connection with a Cranston bank robbery after police found her in a Massachusetts motel room bed with cash possibly linked to the holdup.

Her attorney declined to comment on the Feb. 10 charges.

It’s unclear whether she has an attorney to comment on the new charges.
