Notorious Female Bank Robbers

The 'Barbie Bandits'

Heather Johnston and Ashley Miller quickly became known as the "Barbie Bandits" after their February, 2007, holdup of a Bank of America branch in Acworth, Georgia.

The girls, dressed in designer jeans and sunglasses as they robbed the bank, were both 18 at the time and news reporters couldn't resist poking fun at their tender age, one writing “police don’t know whether they had a getaway car — or whether they were old enough to drive.”

The girls, who met while working at a strip club, plotted with Johnston's boyfriend, Michael Chastang and a bank teller to pull off the heist. Miller was sentenced to two years in jail and Johnston to 10 years probation, getting a lighter sentence because she was the first to cooperate with the investigation.
