The second of two young women nicknamed the "Barbie Bandits" and charged with taking about $11,000 in a February bank heist has been released on bond, authorities said Thursday.

Ashley Miller, 18, was released from the Cobb County Jail on a $15,000 bond shortly after midnight, Cobb County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Nancy Bodiford said. Heather Johnston, 19, was released on March 31.

Johnston and Miller were videotaped wearing sunglasses and laughing as they appeared to rob a Bank of America in Acworth, Georgia on Feb. 27, earning themselves the nickname. They are charged with felony theft and marijuana possession.

They were arrested two days later.

Police also charged a bank teller and another man, saying it appeared to be an inside job because of the amount of money involved.

According to authorities, Miller and Johnston went on a shopping spree, ate a meal and gave money to the homeless afterward.
