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.
