Suspect In Bank Robberies Moved From State To Federal Court

The case of a Minnesota woman accused of robbing two banks across the North Dakota border in Grand Forks has been moved from state court to federal court.

Charlene Corona, of Crookston, Minnesota, has been indicted on two federal bank robbery charges. She could enter pleas at a March 8 hearing in U.S. District Court in Fargo.

Corona also goes by the last name Espinoza. She’s accused of robbing a Bremer Bank on Sept. 30, 2015, and Citizen’s Community Credit Union 12 days later.

There were no customers in either financial institution at the time of the robberies, and no one was hurt.
