The FBI is looking for information to help identify two women who dressed as nuns and attempted to rob a bank in Pennsylvania’s Poconos on Monday.

The women, dressed in black nuns’ habits, walked into a Citizens Bank near Tannersville, threatened the teller with a gun and demanded money. According to news reports, the pair got “spooked” and fled without taking anything.
