Police in Ohio are searching for two brazen girls, believed to be as young as 12 and 14, who robbed a bank in a Cincinnati suburb and escaped a police dragnet that included a helicopter and dogs.
The baby faced bank robbers, one believed to be 12 years old and the other 14 or 15, entered the 1st National Bank in Symmes Township, "walked up to the bank teller, and gave the teller a note demanding money," Steve Barnett, spokesman for the Hamilton County Sherriff's Office, said in a statement.
Neither of the girls carried a weapon, but "the teller gave the suspects an undetermined amount of U.S. currency," according to Barnett.
The bank was robbed at 3:19 p.m. There was one teller, but no customers in the bank at time. No one was injured. The girls were last seen fleeing in a easterly direction from the bank.
The girls weren't taller than five foot four. Talk about an easy robbery. Didn't they have to fill out a withdrawal slip at least to get the cash? Things just keep getting weirder and weirder.
