Sugar & Spice Bank Robbers (aka The Barbie Bandits): Teen-looking Girl Bandits Hold up Bank in Atlanta


Seems like another example of real life imitating art, Sugar & Spice. Two teen girls sporting sun glasses robbed the Bank of America branch within a Kroger grocer store in Acworth, GA. (Map of area) Their future’s so bright they have to wear shades, NOT. Doesn’t this story have all the makings of over-blown media coverage. I think these two may rue the day that they pulled this stunt.

“It’s extremely unusual to see young female bank robbers”, says Delk. It’s not known if the pair left in a vehicle. But Delk says the photos are so good police are hoping someone will recognize them and turn them in.

The police and school administrators will be combing the high schools for the “girls most likely to rob a bank.” Crime just gets stranger and stranger these days.

Police released photos of the girls. They look to be 15 to 24 years old, police said.

Jay Dillon, Cobb County schools spokesman, said has talked to principals at two nearby high schools this morning – Harrison and North Cobb. He said neither recognize the girls.

He said the youthful bank robbers are the topic of conversation among school staffers. (AJC)

The Barbie Bandits hold up Bank in sunglasses

So much for wearing a ski mask or any disguise what so ever. Maybe their disguise was they were wearing a different shade of lipstick than normal?

      I remember reading about one female bank robber in New York who used to go in and (at some point) rob the bank while topless. No joke. She pulled off (no pun) a string of bank robberies, and I’m not sure she ever was caught.

      We know one thing: the male tellers by and large couldn’t remember her facial features. Again, no joke.

      (One would think, though, that she didn’t walk in topless … so her disrobing process in the bank should have achieved some attention. She also wore dark glasses.)

      Richard … lol

      That would have been one interesting line up if they had ever caught the one in NY. Don’t remember seeing that one on Law & Order, :)

      They may think it was funny then but not soon when they will be sharing a cell with Bertha.

      What stupidity….doesn’t anyone think about their actions anymore?

      I bet their sh*ting bricks right now :-)

      Watch them be hardened cons that just look young, lol.

      Either that or they are someone’s first grade teacher just out of college looking to pay back their college loan early.

      Actually I was thinking maybe a sorority pledge stunt….maybe a gang initiation?

      This is one of those cases that will probably be solved by the end of the week…I bet their parents are arranging for them to turn themselves in right now.

      It reminds me of those girls on the Simple Life

      As good as the pictures are, the girls must be from out of state, or someone would have identified the pictures almost as soon as they aired on local tv.

      They think they’re Thelma and Louis or something. Young and foolish. My guess is they think they will be able to run around the country and get away with this until there’s enough $$$ to remain anonymous forever.

      Can’t wait to find out who these younguns are.

      Actually, it is two guys dressed like girls. At that age effeminate looking guys can easily dress like girls and get away with it. Good disguise? yes? Just kidding.

      They HAD TO BE HIGH to think that could’ve been
      a stellar idea at any point.

      Marijuana… IT’S NOT

      Whoa!! They don’t look so much like Barbie now. They looked better with sunglasses on surveillance tape.
