A London woman, Jennifer L. Moore, 51, was sentenced Monday, December 23rd to 168 months in federal prison, by United States District Judge Robert E. Wier, for carjacking, two armed bank robberies, and brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence.   


According to her guilty plea agreement, Moore asked someone for a ride outside of St. Joseph Hospital in London; and during the ride, she pulled out a loaded handgun and demanded the van.  Moore then drove the van to Forcht Bank in London, disguised herself, and demanded that the tellers provide her all their $100 dollar bills from their drawers.  In her plea agreement, Moore further admitted to keeping her handgun displayed and repeatedly telling employees she would kill them.  Moore left Forcht Bank with $16,088.00.


Moore then drove the stolen van to Cumberland Valley National Bank, where she once again demanded the bank tellers’ cash and threatened their lives.  Similarly, Moore motioned to her loaded firearm while demanding the employees move faster.  Moore left CVNB with $14,481.00.  Moore brandished and carried a loaded 9mm semiautomatic pistol throughout the robberies and then led law enforcement on a brief high speed chase, which ended with her attempt to run on foot.     


Moore pled guilty to the offenses on July 1, 2019.  Under federal law, she must serve 85 percent of her prison sentence; and upon her release, she will be under the supervision of the United States Probation Office for five years.
