Woman sentenced in North Pole holdup

Posted: Wednesday, August 19, 2009

FAIRBANKS - A woman who held two bank employees at gunpoint this spring pleaded guilty to assault and was sentenced to six months in jail.

Authorities said 49-year-old Alisa Kirby of Salcha entered the North Pole branch of Key Bank and ordered two tellers to stay on the ground until police arrived. The criminal complaint says the woman with no criminal record did not demand money, but instead "ranted" about how the police did not help with her domestic violence situation.

When officers did not immediately arrive, Kirby directed the tellers to the back of the bank at gunpoint, then eventually left. Police arrested her a few days later.
