PALOS HEIGHTS, Ill., July 1 (UPI) -- Authorities in Illinois said a former bank employee and an accomplice robbed the facility of $120,000 while dressed in nun costumes.

The federal criminal complaint states Navahcia Edwards of Chicago and a male accomplice who has not been arrested robbed the TCF Bank in Palos Heights of $120,000 May 29 while displaying weapons and wearing nun costumes, the Chicago Tribune reported Friday.

FBI officials said Edwards used her Visa card to buy a pair of "Nun on the Run adult masks" 10 days prior to the robbery.

Edwards was charged in June with embezzling nearly $20,000 while working at a Chase Bank branch in Country Club Hills.
