MINNEAPOLIS -

A 23-year-old Minnesota woman accused of robbing five banks within a few weeks has been formally charged in one of the holdups.

Ranya Al-Huthaili of Roseville was charged Thursday in federal court in Madison, Wis., with robbing the Dairy State Bank in Menomonie, Wis., on Monday. That's the last of the heists she's accused of pulling off.

Al-Huthaili was arrested Monday evening at Rosedale Shopping Center. She also allegedly held up Minnesota banks in Cologne, Stacy and Forest Lake, then one in Hudson, Wis.

Authorities said the female bank robber would hide behind big, black sunglasses.

Court documents say federal agents determined the cash Al-Huthaili used to buy a laptop computer at Rosedale came from the Menomonie robbery.

The Star Tribune reports Al-Huthaili remains in federal custody.
