Marietta, GA. (AP) Only one of the so-called “Barbie Bandits” will be spending time behind bars for a suburban Atlanta bank heist.

Ashley Miller will be locked up for two years and spend the rest of a 10-year sentence on probation after a guilty plea on theft and drug charges. Heather Johnston has been sentenced to 10 years probation for her role in the February 2007 heist.

The two were caught on tape wearing sunglasses and laughing as they appeared to rob a Bank of America branch in a supermarket. They admitted plotting with a teller to take the money and later going on a shopping spree that included a stop in a fashionable
hair salon.

The former teller has been sentenced to five years in prison. A fourth person convicted in the case will be sentenced today.

The heist netted $11,000.
