Girls 14 and 15 Arrested in Armed Robbery of Bank

Two Massachusetts girls, ages 14 and 15, are being held in the armed robbery of a bank, police say. Bay Coast Bank in Fall River was robbed Wednesday when, police say, the 14-year-old walked into Bay Coast Bank and gave a teller a note demanding cash or she “would blow everything up and kill everybody,” WBZ reports. The teller gave her an undisclosed amount of cash. Police used security footage from street cameras to trace her once she left the bank and got into a car, whose license plate was caught by the cameras, per the Herald News. The older girl was reportedly driving. Police tracked the plate and arrested the girls at a home in Fall River. (More bank robbery stories.)
