A woman who wore a witch costume to rob a bank on Halloween, then vanished amid a puff of smoke caused by an exploding dye pack, won't be able to make her sentence disappear.

Twenty-three-year-old Vanessa Molina has been sentenced to 13 years in prison for a series of holdups in the Olympia area. One of the heists occurred Oct. 31.

Molina abandoned a witch hat and about $2,000 in cash when a dye pack used to mark stolen currency exploded after the Halloween holdup. But police say she got away with about $11,500 from the other holdups.
