The "Barbie Bandits" Captured

Update: 3-2-07
The so-called "Barbie Bandits" were arrested yesterday. Police arrested a couple of "Ken's" too. The AP is reporting:

"Ashley Miller and Heather Johnson, and bank teller Benny Herman Allen III, 22, were charged with felony theft and marijuana possession, said Cobb County Police spokeswoman Cassie Reece. Another man, Michael Chastang, 27, also was arrested in the case and charged felony theft and drug trafficking.

"It was a conspiracy to take money from the bank," Reece said. "They were in on it." Surveillance video shows the robbers laughing and smiling as they handed a teller a note demanding money. Police initially thought the girls were as young as 16.

Police declined to release the contents of the robbers' note and the amount of money stolen. The store is in a strip mall in an upscale west Cobb residential neighborhood, about 28 miles north of Atlanta."
Police are searching for two young women who used nothing but sunglasses to disguise their faces while they robbed a bank inside a Kroger store in suburban Atlanta. The two are shown smiling while they robbed the bank.

The two appear to be between 16 and 24 years old. It isn't clear whether the two had a weapon. Authorities also didn't say what was in their note. The robbery happened around 12:15 pm on Tuesday, Februrauy 27, 2007. Watch VIDEO of the robbery.
