Flip-Flop Bandit Pleads Guilty for Illinois Stick-Up

Carla R. Walker, 43, of Lebanon, Ill. must not have listed “running away” in her escape plan when she wore flip-flops to rob her hometown bank.

Walker pled guilty Thursday in federal court on one count of bank robbery, announced the Justice Department in a press release.

They must have heard Walker coming when she entered Lebanon’s First Federal Savings Bank sporting bright green flip-flops in March. She held up tellers with a pellet gun, nabbing between $14,000 and $16,000. That’s plenty to buy more practical get-away shoes for next time.

There may not be a next time though; she potentially is facing some serious prison time.
