Dorchester woman denies bank robbery


A 45-year-old woman who authorities said robbed a bank in Back Bay last month pleaded not guilty to one count of unarmed robbery in Boston Municipal Court Wednesday, prosecutors said. Johanna Quish of Dorchester was arrested Monday in Danvers by members of the FBI’s Violent Crimes Task Force, following a traffic stop. She was ordered held on $25,000 bail, the Suffolk district attorney’s office said. The charge against Quish stems from the April 13 robbery of a Sovereign Bank branch at 575 Boylston St. Investigators are investigating whether Quish was involved in four other heists, an FBI spokesman said Monday.
