Cindy Sanchez Carabeo, 50, pleaded guilty in federal court on Tuesday to one count of interfering with interstate commerce by robbery, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

She told the judge that she carried out the robberies to pay for her daughter's party and cover her rent. She now faces up to 20 years in prison.

Police arrested Carabeo in May after she stole $6,000 from a BB&T Bank, a Wells Fargo and Florida Central Credit Union in Brandon in 30 minutes.

After she returned home from the third robbery, police arrested her and she was positively identified by all three bank managers.
