A woman federal authorities say acted as a scout for a serial bank and credit union robber was sentenced two years in federal prison Tuesday.

Deseri C. Garred, 28, pleaded guilty earlier this year to conspiracy to commit credit union robbery, armed credit union robbery and lying to a grand jury, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Seattle.

Garred was convicted of helping Mitchell Andre Friend, 27, of robbing three Tacoma credit unions in 2004 and 1005, federal prosecutors said. Andre was sentenced to 19 years in prison in March.
