Byron Woman Admits Role in Rochester Bank Heist
Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - A Byron woman has pleaded guilty to being involved in the robbery of a Rochester credit union in June.
21-year-old Madison Reichert was charged with two counts of aggravated robbery and pleaded to one of them. She will be sentenced in December. As part of her plea deal, Reichert is expected to receive a 90-day jail sentence, and has agreed to cooperate in the case involving her boyfriend, who police say was the one who actually robbed the business.
Police say 19-year-old Andrew Fogan has confessed to the June 19th holdup of the Affinity Plus Federal Credit Union along 55th street near the Walmart North store. Police say Reichert helped plan the heist and was the getaway driver. Fogan showed a gun during the robbery and made off with $7,300. After the robbery, the two drove to Chicago where they spent much of the money.
Police say the two have a one-year-old child who was with them during the robbery.
Fogan’s case is pending.
