  • Views97

A 34-year-old New Haven woman was recently sentenced to 30 months imprisonment, followed by three years of supervised release, for her participation in five Connecticut bank robberies, including one in Greenwich.

According to the U.S. Department of Justice, Moneek Grant assisted 47-year-old Kevin Bolden of New Haven in carrying out five of the six bank robberies he committed in March 2012.

Court documents and statements made in court show that Mr. Bolden stole a total of more than $15,000 between March 7 and March 27, 2012 at various banks throughout Connecticut, including the Citibank located at 453 East Putnam Avenue in Greenwich.

With the exception of a March 7 robbery of Citizens Bank in New Haven, Ms. Grant assisted Mr. Bolden by preparing the notes that he gave to bank employees and sat in the getaway vehicle while he committed the robberies.

Ms. Grant has been detained since her arrest on April 1. Mr. Bolden pleaded guilty to one count of bank robbery on Dec. 4 and awaits sentencing.

This case has been investigated by the FBI and the New Haven, Stamford, Woodbridge, Greenwich and Bridgeport Police Departments. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Douglas P. Morabito.
