SIOUX CITY, IA – Two teenage girls arrested and accused of stealing 10-thousand dollars from a bank in Iowa Saturday.
Authorities say one worked as a bank teller, and she apparently convinced her roommate to stage a heist.
Deborah Souverain reports.
They’re not your typical bank robbers.
Heaven Zevenbergen, a former elk point high school valedictorian and angelic Perez are now facing felony theft charges after pulling off a heist in broad day light.
Sioux City police say the 18 year-old’s co-conspired to steal from a security national bank inside of the Hamilton Hyvee store in Sioux City.
Here, Perez hidden behind a baseball cap and fake facial hair can be seen sliding a note to Zevenbergen who was a teller at the bank.
Cash in hand an outside security camera catches Perez as she makes her exit.
(Matt Kampfe/Maintenance Worker) Yea it’s pretty crazy because you wouldn’t expect something like that to happen around here.
Matt Kampfe is a maintenance worker at Morningside Country Estates where the women lived together.
He says he was there when police showed up looking for the pair in this building Wednesday.
(Matt Kampfe/Maintenance Worker) But our other maintenance guys said they had seen them around and that they lived at a certain apartment.
Police say the teens may face federal charges.
