Judge: Woman guilty of robbing bank in nun costume

Tribune reporter

A Chicago woman accused of robbing a bank to pay off the money she embezzled from her job at another bank was found guilty today in federal court of conspiracy and bank robbery.

Navahcia Edwards, 25, had no reaction when U.S. District Judge Matthew Kennelly handed down the verdict, exchanging only a few words with her lawyer before leaving the courtroom and returning to jail.

Edwards teamed up with her boyfriend to rob a south suburban bank at gunpoint in May 2011 while disguised in scary masks and nuns' robes reminiscent of the movie "The Town." The couple watched the film a few weeks prior to the bank robbery, her boyfriend testified.
