SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - Two women accused of staging a bank robbery in Sioux City have each been sentenced to five years in prison.

The Sioux City Journal (http://bit.ly/23Ypmzc ) reports that 19-year-old Heaven Zevenbergen and 18-year-old Angelica Perez were sentenced in separate hearings Wednesday. Both had pleaded guilty to second-degree theft.

Prosecutors said Perez entered a Security National Bank branch at a Hy-Vee supermarket last August in a disguise, and warned Zevenbergen via a note that she was armed. According to prosecutors, Zevenbergen, then a teller at the bank, knew Perez and gave her $10,000.

Both women have been ordered to jointly repay the bank the $10,000.
