Two women entered a bank in Lancaster yesterday wearing masks and surgical gloves, one carrying a handgun, and the other had a handgun in her waistband. It happened at 10:21am at the Northwest Savings Bank, 922 Columbia Avenue. The women loitered in the lobby for a few minutes before walking toward the vault area.  They left the bank after one of the tellers attempted to engage the women in conversation.

    Are you sure the one is a woman? She needs the money for a makeover.

      Medical science has not progressed far enough to help that one.

    Here we go again. Where is the gun charge? Carrying those weapons is already illegal under current law and using them in a felony is yet another charge.

    New meaning has been lent to the term, "Ugly American." Bet she has to sneak up on a glass of water to get a drink.
