Pittsburgh Woman Sentenced on Bank Robbery Charges

PITTSBURGH, PA - A former resident of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, has been sentenced in federal court to 18 months imprisonment, followed by three (3) years supervised release, on her conviction related to a charge of bank robbery, Acting United States Attorney Stephen R. Kaufman announced today.

United States District Judge Cathy Bissoon imposed the sentence on Gloria Anderson, 37, formerly of Pittsburgh, PA.

According to information presented to the Court, on June 26, 2020, Anderson robbed the Dollar Bank, located in the Oakland neighborhood of Pittsburgh. Anderson entered the bank and handed bank personnel a note that read “Gimme $10,000 or I will shoot.” Anderson took $10,000 from the bank but was arrested by City of Pittsburgh Police shortly after she exited the bank and walked across the street.

Assistant United States Attorney Rebecca L. Silinski prosecuted this case on behalf of the government.

The City of Pittsburgh Bureau of Police made the initial arrest of Anderson and the Federal Bureau of Investigation conducted the federal investigation leading to the successful prosecution of Anderson.
