St. Louis woman gets 18 months in prison for role in ATM Solutions robbery

ST. LOUIS (KMOV) -- A St. Louis woman has been sentenced for her involvement in hiding and moving money from a multi-million dollar armed robbery of ATM Solutions in August 2010.

Annkesha Welch, 31, was sentenced Monday to 18 months in prison.

According to court documents, shortly after the robbery of ATM solutions, Candi Goodson went to the home of Cathy Goodson with Latunya Wright in a truck containing some of the stolen money.

Cathy Goodson agreed to hold the money at her house for a couple days. A few days later, they returned to the house with Welch and James Wright to count and repackage the money.

Candi Goodson and Welch were both promised $3,000 each for their help. They counted the money and placed bundles of $20,000 in freezer bags and put it in a storage container.

Authorities said Wright had the money taken to Texas and buried.

Wright, Welch and Candi Goodson then drove to Texas and Atlanta, Georgia with the stolen money, where they hid in a storage locker.

Welch pled guilty in January to one felony count of transportation of stolen property.

Her co-defendants Candi Goodson, 24, previously pled guilty to one felony count of conspiracy to transport stolen property; and Cathy Goodson, 50, pled guilty to one felony count of lying to a federal agent. Their sentencings have been set for April 9, 2012.

Yolanda Willis, who pled guilty to making false statements to the FBI about her help concealing the money, still awaits sentencing.
