Belle Fourche woman pleads guilty to bank robbery

By  | 

On Friday a 23-year-old Belle Fourche woman pleaded guilty to robbing the Pioneer Bank and Trust in Spearfish back in May.

According to the factual basis statement signed by Kaycee Jade Teppo, she stole about $1,500 dollars from the bank on East Jackson Boulevard after running out of gas in front of the bank.

That document says Teppo handed the teller a note saying "Act normal. I have a gun. Give me all your 50's and 100's."

Her attorney said she was not armed.

Teppo faces a maximum prison sentence of 20 years, a $250,000 fine, or both, and three years of supervised release.

Federal prosecutors recommend that she pay restitution to First Pioneer Bank.

Magistrate Judge Daneta Wollmann says Teppo does not need to be in custody as long as she lives with her parents and continues to take her medication.
