Three women charged for Baltimore County bank robbery

Implied they had bomb, police say

ESSEX, Md. (WMAR) - They were not trying to save the world like Charlie's Angels, a popular television series from the late 1970's.  Instead, this trio is charged for trying to pull a page from Bonnie Parker's book.

Baltimore County Police say three women are to blame for the robbery at Baltimore County Savings Bank in Essex on Friday.

The robbery happened just after 3:00 p.m. in the 500 block of Eastern Boulevard.

Police say two women walked into the bank, handed the teller a note implying they had a bomb, got the cash, and drove away.
