A transgender woman has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for robbing a Mississippi bank to pay for her plastic surgery in Mexico.
The woman, who calls herself Iconic Facce, robbed BancorpSouth in Gulfport on February 22, 2019, after approaching a teller before telling her you have ‘one minute’ to hand over cash ‘or die’.
According to reports, she made away with $4,800 and used the money to fly to Mexico where she used it to fluff up her cheeks, perfect her pout and thin out her nose.
When she returned to the U.S. on March 30, she tried to quietly get through Houston Airport without being noticed but her swollen, puffy cheeks and bandaged nose gave her away to the officers, who were waiting at the airport to arrest her.
Authorities tracked her by tracing the cellphone she used on the day of the robbery which they then followed to the airport, to Mexico, and back again.
