Bookmark and Share

US Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Sioux City woman charged with bank robbery was sentenced on Monday, by US District Judge Karen E. Schreier.

Michelle Marie Bock, age 39, was sentenced to 36 months in custody to be followed by 2 years of supervised release. She was also ordered to make restitution to the bank in the amount of $808.

Bock robbed the First Premier Bank, located at 3401 South Kiwanis Avenue, in Sioux Falls on July 17, 2012. At that time she presented a note reading “This is a robbery” to a teller, and was given money. Bock had taped fake dynamite to her torso and wore the “bomb” into the bank.

Bock concocted a story to law enforcement that she had been kidnapped in Sioux City and forced to rob the bank. She said two men had taped the bomb to her torso and said they told her they would blow it up if she failed to do as instructed.This case was investigated by the Sioux Falls Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant US Attorney John E. Haak prosecuted the case.

Bock was immediately turned over to the custody of the US Marshal.
