Bank Robbers Dressed as Nuns Sentenced to Prison

MONROE COUNTY, Pa. -- Two women who tried to rob a bank in the Poconos dressed as nuns were sentenced to prison earlier this week.

Melisa Arias of the Dominican Republic was sentenced to 37 months in federal prison.

Swahilys Pedraza-Rodriguez of Connecticut got 15 months.

The pair dressed up as nuns last August during an attempted robbery at the Citizens Bank branch in Tannersville.

The women also faced charges for robbing a bank in New Jersey.
