A prisoner at the Framingham, Massachusetts, women’s prison now faces additional charges in Connecticut.  Plainfield Police say 40-year-old Gail Rasmussen is charged with taking part in a holdup a year and a half ago at the Eastern Federal Bank in Plainfield.

Plainfield police found similarities between their case and two other holdups at banks in Massachusetts,  and when Rasmussessen was arrested in Massachusetts,  arranged her extradition to face Connecticut robbery and larceny charges.
