'Church Lady Bandit'

Sylvete Phylis Gilbert, 46, finally got caught after a long string of bank robberies in the Columbus, Ohio, area. Law enforcement officials had dubbed her the "Church Lady Bandit" because a witness in one of her early robberies said she looked like someone who had just come from church.

She was indicted Jan. 5 on 12 second-degree felony counts of robbery and 12 counts of robbery in the third degree for robbing numerous banks and businesses between January, 2006 and December, 2010. At the time of this writing, no trial date had been set. Gilbert was arrested Dec. 23 and remains in Franklin County jail.
