Toothless Woman Robs Bank, Tells Detectives She Planned To Spend The Money On A New Set Of Dentures

Waynesburg, Pa. (The Weekly Vice) - Evelyn Marie Fuller, a 49-year-old Carmichaels resident was jailed Tuesday after she allegedly robbed a bank to raise money for a new set of dentures.

According to Waynesburg Borough police, Fuller entered the First National Bank on January 20th at 4:57 p.m., minutes before it was due to close. She then handed the teller a note demanding an undisclosed amount of cash.

Surveillance video showed a toothless woman exiting a vehicle before entering the bank to commit the robbery. An employee of the bank recognized Fuller from her church and was able to identify her to police.

Detectives questioned Fuller, but initially had to let her go due to lack of evidence. A witness, however, brought a jacket to the police station Monday and stated that it was the very same jacket Fuller wore during the robbery. He stated that Fuller borrowed the jacket and then returned it to him after the alleged robbery.

With mounting evidence against her, Fuller turned herself in to authorities on Thursday and admitted to committing the robbery.

Fuller explained that she robbed the bank because she didn't have any teeth and wasn't able to afford dentures. She went on to explain that she had hoped to put the money towards a new set of dentures since her disability checks didn't provide enough income to purchase them on her own.

Fuller was booked into the Greene County Jail and charged with two counts of robbery and one count each of theft and making terroristic threats. She is being held in lieu of $75,000 bond. She is scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday for a preliminary hearing.
