AKRON, Ohio (AP) — A woman who helped her boyfriend steal about $8 million from an armored car company was sentenced Wednesday to five years in prison.

Nicole Boyd, 25, admitted stealing the money in November with Roger Dillon to escape financial hardship. Boyd and Dillon pleaded guilty in March to bank larceny and other charges in what federal prosecutors said was one of the largest thefts ever in northern Ohio.

Wiping away tears several times, Boyd told the judge in a quiet voice that she was sorry for what she had done and learned a lot from it.
