It turns out that the Barbie Bandit bank robbery was an inside job. Two 19 year old teens, Ashley Miller and Heather Johnson were arrested today along with 22 year old bank teller, Benny Herman Allen III. The three were charged with felony theft and marijuana possession. Their prison future is so bright, they gotta wear shades.
The women, both 19, and the bank teller were stopped by police in Douglas County about 20 miles from where robbery occurred Tuesday afternoon, said sheriff’s Maj. M.O. Harper.
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. (AP)
