Woman says she robbed a Chinatown bank after rejecting first target

[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

A 40-year-old woman told a federal judge Thursday she went to rob First Hawaiian Bank’s Chinatown branch on June 17, but spotted a teller who had identified her in a 2002 robbery; she then walked out and wound up robbing the nearby Bank of Hawaii branch.

Debbie Louise Yxcot, 40, pleaded guilty in federal court Thursday afternoon to the robbery of the Chinatown Bank of Hawaii. She faces up to 20 years in prison when she is sentenced in January.

Honolulu police officers responding to a complaint of people arguing at a Hauula beach park on June 18 recognized Yxcot as the bank robber from the previous day and arrested her.
