WAYNESBURG, Pa., Feb. 1 (UPI) -- Police in Pennsylvania said a woman accused of robbing a bank allegedly told officers she committed the crime to pay for a set of dentures.

Investigators said Evelyn Marie Fuller, 49, was asked to come in for questioning Tuesday after a man told officers he recognized a coat he had loaned the woman in surveillance footage and she told officers she was telling them the truth on the advice of her pastor, The Observer-Reporter, Washington, Pa., reported Wednesday.

Fuller, who police said has no teeth, told officers she robbed the First National Bank in Waynesburg Jan. 20 to obtain money for a set of dentures.

Fuller, who did not display a weapon during the crime, was charged with two counts of robbery and one count each of theft and terroristic threats. She was jailed in lieu of $75,000 bond.
