Woman Involved in 2019 Le Mars Bank Robbery Re-Captured
October 25, 2022 10:52am
A woman who escaped federal custody earlier this year in Sioux City has been arrested in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Karen Rose Merrick was convicted of being an accessory after the fact to a bank robbery that occurred in Le Mars in 2019. Merrick was sentenced to 30 months in prison, but she began a term of supervised release just over a year later in January of 2021.
A U.S. Marshal wrote in a court filing that Merrick left for work on July 18, 2022 but she never returned to the residential re-entry center.
Reports from 2019 indicate Merrick was the getaway driver of a U-Haul truck used after the robbery. Philip White, the other person involved, received two separate federal sentences totaling more than a decade.
The pair were eventually stopped by police in rural Plymouth County after police used stop sticks to bring the box truck to a halt.
