Tenranee Millet was arrested in January of 2021 on the other side of the country in Georgia after having causing the explosion in September earlier that year. Millet was a student at Santa Monica College in California.
On March 21, Millet pleaded guilty to "unlawful possession of a firearm and destructive device," according to a press release from the US Attorney's Office in the Central District of California.
In September of 2021, after having a dispute with the branch manager, Millet yelled she would "blow this b*tch up!"
After Millet left briefly, the manager called 911 and notified law enforcement.
Millet came back a few minutes later to throw a Molotov cocktail into the branch. The explosion caused a fire and as Millet left, she threatened another customer and threw a glass bottle at the customer's truck.
The reason for the initial dispute was that Millet had grown impatient waiting in line. When she spoke to the manager Millet said that she believed she had been waiting for too long in line.
Within a few minutes police arrived and recovered what remained of the explosive device.
At the time of her arrest in Georgia, Millet led police on chase in a stolen van which ended when she crashed. Inside the van, other materials for Molotov cocktails were found.
Officers used video surveillance from the bank branch to identify Millet committing the crimes in LA. She suffered injuries from the crash which were then treated.
She has been in custody since the arrest and will now be admitted to federal prison.
She was originally charged in March of 2022 with "one count of attempted arson and one count of unlawful possession of a destructive device," according to records from the US Attorney's office.
If she had been convicted of each original charge, she would have had a "mandatory minimum sentence of five years in federal prison" for the charges that were originally brought.
