Did Big Pun's Mother Rob A Wells Fargo Bank In Miami?

It's so hard to be like Pun's mom.
A woman accused of robbing a Wells Fargo bank in Miami, Florida is said to be the mother of late rapper, Christopher "Big Pun" Rios.
Gail Simpson, 63, mother to late rapper , Christopher "Big Pun" Rios, was arrested on Tuesday (Sept. 30) by Miami-Dade police.  According to reports, Simpson, entered the the bank around 3:30 pm and demanded cash from an employee. 
Federal officials say she got away with an undisclosed amount of money and no injuries were reported.
If you're shocked by hearing this, don be  -- it seems as though Big Pun's mom has a history of robbing banks.  In fact, she's currently on probation after being convicted of bank robbery in June. 
I can understand falling on hard times -- I mean we're all strugglingin some form or fashion.  But this isn't the first incident of financial woes for the Rios family.
Liza Rios, Pun's widow, sued Fat Joe in 2009 for unrecovered earnings from Pun's royalties. Liza claims that Pun's family was forced to live in a homeless shelter after allegedly exhausting their efforts to stop others, including Joe, from profiting off the deceased MC's success.
If you remember back in '09, Fat Joe released a statement saying: 
“Immediately after Puns death I gave Liza Rios the whole advance of the Endangered Species album, NO ONE but Liza made a dollar off that album. I also gave her the total advance from the publishing company that was due to Big Pun.
I’ve never made a dollar off Big Pun since his passing. This was hundreds of thousands of dollars of frivolous spending, after the second payoff I washed my hands. Since then we have been through 6 lawyers, harassment on various radio stations and online mediums every time she needs more money. I also have legal documents stating that NO ONE is making money off of Big Pun.
I sympathize with Liza, but I have done already done enough for her. In these economic times we as parents need to be resilient and do what it takes to provide for our own families.”
Wow!!!  It looks like, "It's so hard..." for this family to stay above water.  But it looks like Mama Rios is sinking fast.  Perhaps at 63, she needs to retire her career as a bank robber, since apparently, she's not very good at it.
