An Ohio woman who used a pink umbrella in an attempt to rob a fast-food restaurant at the drive-thru window was ordered Monday to serve a little more than six months behind bars.
Amanda M. Ringler, 27, of Payne, was charged in March with attempted robbery after an encounter at a Burger King in New Haven.
According to Allen Superior Court documents, Ringler pointed an umbrella at an employee through the drive-thru window and demanded money. The employee hit the restaurant’s panic alarm, and Ringler drove off empty-handed, though witnesses notified police of her car’s description.
Last month, Ringler pleaded guilty to attempted theft.
Monday, Allen Superior Judge John F. Surbeck sentenced her to three years in prison, but ordered Ringler to serve 183 days, while he suspended the remaining two years and 182 days. Surbeck also ordered Ringler to serve one year of probation.
