MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. (AP) — A 53-year-old woman accused of using cans of spaghetti sauce to simulate a bomb when she robbed a bank has pleaded guilty.

Police say 53-year-old parole absconder Ophelia A. Neal robbed a Fifth Third Bank branch in Macomb County's Clinton Township on April 6. It's about 15 miles north-northeast of Detroit.

Neal pleaded guilty Monday in Oakland County Circuit Court in Mount Clemens to bank robbery and explosives charges. Judge Jennifer Faunce is scheduled to sentence her Nov. 19.

Police say Neal told bank employees she had a bomb in her cloth bag and demanded money. They say she took an undisclosed amount of money and escaped in a car with a man at the wheel.

The state says she has previous fraud, assault and marijuana convictions.
