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

Forty-nine-year-old Evelyn Marie Fuller, of Carmichaels, was arrested on Tuesday by police in Waynesburg, where she’s charged with robbing the First National Bank on 20 January.

The Observer-Reporter of Washington, Pennsylvania reports Wednesday that Fuller told a district judge she has mental health problems and lives on disability.

After her arraignment, Fuller told a reporter, “I’m very sorry for what I did and I know God is going to punish me for it.”

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