SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - An employee at a bank in northwest Iowa has been accused of conspiring with an acquaintance to stage a robbery at the bank.

The Sioux City Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1MARQXi ) 18-year-old Heaven Zevenbergen is charged with second-degree theft in connection with the robbery Saturday at a Security National Bank branch at a Hy-Vee supermarket.

Court documents say Zevenbergen knew 18-year-old Angelica Perez, who is accused of entering the bank in a disguise and warning Zevenbergen via a note that she was armed. The newspaper reports Zevenbergen, then a teller at the bank, gave Perez $10,000.

Perez was arrested Wednesday and posted bail Thursday for release from the Woodbury County Jail. She faces a theft charge. Zevenbergen remains at the jail.

Court records do not list attorneys for the women.
