A 14-year-old girl was swiftly convicted for armed robbery at Teacher FCU in Roseville.

The unidentified girl pleaded guilty in juvenile to simple robbery. The teen entered the credit union and handed the teller a note demanding cash in $20 and $100 bills, and saying she had a gun.

But she apparently lost her nerve and ran off when the teller stepped away from the window to get the cash. She was arrested a short while later and told police she did not really have a gun. She told police she wanted to rob the credit union because her account was empty. She is scheduled to be sentenced on Sept. 21.
