Immanuel and Cara Lee Williams
Rap Sheet: Fifteen bank robberies in Florida and Alabama from December 2012 through November 2013.
Crime History: In late 2012, Immanuel and Cara Lee Williams of Tampa, Florida, found that they couldn't pay their bills. Immanuel had recently stopped working as a part-time postal employee, and Cara's position at a bank wasn't going to cover their rising debts at the local casino. So, married just six months with a baby soon on the way, the Williams' decided to supplement Cara's maternity pay by robbing banks.
Their first heist occurred on December 5, 2012, just 10 days before Williams gave birth. Altogether, the couple robbed 15 banks across Florida and Alabama. When Cara went back to work, the robberies slowed – though two more went down on days she called in sick. According to reports, Lee committed the bulk of the them, donning the tried and true wig-hat-glasses disguise, including a cap given to Seminole Casino regulars and a fake Afro. Williams was responsible for helping to stake out potential targets, writing the demand notes and driving the getaway car.
While their crimes were seemingly driven by financial need, the couple also embraced the romance of it; during the investigation, police found a note that Cara wrote to her husband which referred to their "Bonnie and Clyde moments." Cara and Immanuel pleaded guilty and are serving five and six years, respectively.
