Toothless Pa. Bank Robber Needed Dentures

Police say a woman who appeared to not have any teeth in surveillance photos from a bank robbery last month has confessed.


WAYNESBURG, Pennsylvania -- Police say a woman who appeared to not have any teeth in surveillance photos from a bank robbery last month has confessed, apologized and said she planned the heist because she needed the money for dentures.

Forty-nine-year-old Evelyn Marie Fuller was arrested Tuesday by police in Pennsylvania, where she's charged with robbing a First National Bank on Jan. 20.

The Observer-Reporter newspaper reports Wednesday that Fuller told a judge she has mental health problems and lives on disability.

Fuller says her pastor told her to tell the truth about what she did.
