Woman admits to crime spree, robbing bank dressed as nun
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey woman has admitted her role in a month long crime spree across two states, including an attempted bank robbery in Pennsylvania where she and another woman dressed as nuns.
The pleas came just weeks after her co-defendant, 19-year-old Swahilys Pedraza-Rodriguez, of New Haven, Connecticut, pleaded guilty to the same offenses.
They were arrested about two weeks after the Garfield robbery, when they went to a Teaneck bank and asked about opening an account. An employee there recognized them and called police.
