Jamilee Kus, 29, pleaded guilty to robbery in Cumberland County Unified Criminal Court. She was sentenced to six years in prison, with all but 30 months suspended, and three years of probation. The conditions of her probation prohibit her from being on any TD Bank property.
She was also ordered to pay TD Bank $1,860 in restitution.
Kus was charged in connection with the July 6 robbery of TD Bank on Maine Mall Road in South Portland. She was arrested after media outlets broadcast a surveillance image of the suspect and a caller told police the robber was Kus.
Police learned from Verizon Wireless that Kus' cellphone was in the Bronx, N.Y., and later in Groton, Conn. A tipster told police she was on her way from New York to Waterville.
The company also provided text messages from the phone made before and after the robbery. One message inquired about the bank's operating hours and another told the recipient that she had the person's money.
