Teen girls rob Acworth bank

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Published on: 02/28/07

These weren't your typical bank robbers.

Two girls, who police say might be as young as 16, walked up to a teller at a Bank of America branch inside a grocery store Tuesday afternoon, handed a note demanding cash, smiled as they waited, and made off with the loot.

"This is something totally new to us," said Cobb police Officer Wayne Delk.

The girls approached the teller inside the Kroger store at 1720 Mars Hill Road in Acworth about 12:15 p.m. The store is in a strip mall in an upscale west Cobb residential neighbood.

What surprised police is that one of the girls appears to be laughing in a bank surveillance camera image -- as though "it's all fun and games to them," Delk said.

Clad in casual wear, the girls used as their only disguise a pair of trendy sunglasses. And police hope that will be their undoing.

"The pictures are too good," Delk said. "Someone's got to know them."

Teenage girls demanding money from bank tellers are rare, but not unheard of.

One such robbery occurred in February 2006 in Lima, Ohio, where, according to published reports, a 15-year-old high school freshman was caught after she left behind her bookbag in the getaway car.

Cobb police do not know how their teenage bandits got away Tuesday.

They barely looked old enough to drive.
