Strip club dancer arrested for bank robbery twice in 1 month

COVENTRY, R.I. -- Authorities say a dancer at a Providence strip club has been arrested in connection with a bank robbery for the second time this month.

Police say 27-year-old Shannon Sampson, of Cranston, was apprehended Saturday at the Warwick Mall.

She's charged in connection with a robbery earlier Saturday at a Citizens Bank branch in Coventry.

Police say a woman entered the bank around noon and passed the teller a note before leaving with "a small amount" of money.

Sampson was arrested Feb. 10 in connection with a Cranston bank robbery after police found her in a Massachusetts motel room bed with cash possibly linked to the holdup.
