Bank Robbery

In his blog, humourandlastlaugh ,Krishna Bhatt recently wrote an entry entitled education-helps. about a bank robbery in his city.I left a link in his comment section for a story about a bank robbery that happened near my city, but he was unable to access it.So, for my readers outside the U.S. ,I've put in photos and the news report of the "Sun glass Bandits"......note the clever disguises.

Four Arrested in Robbery by 'Girl Bandits'
ACWORTH, Ga. (March 2) - Police arrested two 19-year-old girls and a bank teller in a brazen robbery in which two young women disguised in sunglasses were caught on videotape laughing as they held up a bank branch.
After a brief car chase Thursday, the three were arrested about 20 miles from the bank that had been robbery two days earlier, said Douglas County Sheriff's Maj. M.O. Harper.
The young bandits had given the teller a note demanding money from the Bank of America branch at a Kroger grocery.
Police declined to reveal what the note said or how much money was stolen. The branch is in an upscale Cobb County neighborhood 30 miles north of Atlanta.
Ashley Miller and Heather Johnston, both 19, and Benny Herman Allen III, 22, were charged with felony theft and marijuana possession, said Cobb County Police spokeswoman Cassie Reece.
Michael Chastang, 27, also was arrested and charged felony theft and drug trafficking, authorities said. It wasn't clear if they had attorneys.
"It was a conspiracy to take money from the bank," Reece said. "They were in on it."
