Urbana teen charged in bank robbery

An Urbana teenager has been charged in connection with a bank robbery last week on the southeast side of the city.

Eighteen year-old Alicia Marie Smith was charged in court Monday with aggravated robbery and robbery.  Her bond remained at $100,000, and she's due back in court on Oct. 16 with an attorney.

Urbana Police allege that Smith entered the Heartland Bank and Trust at 1812 Philo Road around 3 p.m. Thursday and presented a note to bank employees.  An undisclosed amount of money was then handed to her.  No weapon was displayed in the robbery.

Urbana Police Sergeant Dan Morgan said Smith turned herself in to police on Friday evening.
