Woman wearing pajama bottoms robs 6 banks

Unified Police arrested a woman Sunday in connection with several bank robberies that happened on Friday and Saturday.

She also pleaded guilty in August 2010 to theft by deception, amended from a felony to a class A misdemeanor.

Police say the woman handed tellers at each bank a note demanding money, but never displayed a weapon.

A Utah woman has been arrested after she was identified as the pajama-wearing robber in at least six bank robberies in the Salt Lake City area, police said Monday.

Nannette Louise Perkins, 40, was arrested Sunday afternoon at her Taylorsville home after Salt Lake City police received a tip about her identity, Unified police Lt. Brian Lohrke said.

According to a probable cause statement, a Wells Fargo Bank at 4711 S Highland Dr.in Holladay was robbed, followed by robberies at a University Credit Union in Cottonwood Heights, a Wells Fargo in Sandy and a Deseret First Credit Union in Sandy.

She left one empty-handed, fleeing the scene after a teller refused her request, Fox13 reported.

Both her boyfriend and her son identified her in surveillance footage from the banks.

Lohrke said UPD and Salt Lake City police officers "working from a tip" made the arrest, but he did not release further details. Perkins is believed to be the pajama-wearing robber in at least six bank robberies in the Salt Lake City area.

In January 2013 she admitted to criminal mischief, a class B misdemeanor; plus theft and unlawful possession of a financial transaction card, third-degree felonies.
