(Al Arabiya) Pulling off the perfect bank heist isn't as easy as the movies make it seem, especially when the robber takes aim at five banks – in the space of three weeks.
This week, a 23-year-old Saudi-U.S. woman has been accused of doing just that.
Ranya al-Huthaili, who was arrested earlier this month on charges of robbing the five banks, is now set to remain in custody out of fear she will flee to Saudi Arabia, U.S. newspaper Star Tribune reported on Friday.

"She has been charged with bank robbery [and] telling the teller that she had a gun. She took $2,300," said Nadia Bilbassy-Charters, an Al Arabiya correspondent in Washington.
