Woman sentenced to 33 years for robbery, carjackings

Wednesday, June 26, 2013 - 6:26 am

A Fort Wayne woman was sentenced to 33 years in prison in Allen Superior Court on Tuesday for robbery and carjacking.

Traci L. Dennison, 36, was sentenced to eight-year terms for each of two counts of carjacking and robbery and attempted robbery. She was sentenced to a year in prison for resisting law enforcement.

According to court documents, on Jan. 11, Dennison attempted to rob a Walgreen's, then when the cashier said she had no access to money, Dennison successfully robbed a woman behind her in line. Investigators believe she used a BB gun in the Walgreen's robbery.

Then on the morning of Feb. 3, according to court documents, Dennison used a realistic-looking toy pistol to steal a woman's car from her in a Big K store's parking lot, crashed that car, then used the same technique to steal a second car less than an hour later in a Target store's parking lot. Police said they caught her as she was driving that second car out of the parking lot.

Allen Superior Judge John Surbeck ordered her to pay $750 in restitution to one of the victims and credited her with 146 days time served already against her sentence.
