POCONO TOWNSHIP, PA (WNEP/CNN) - Investigators do not believe there are nuns on the run, but police said the two women who robbed a bank in Pennsylvania did dress up in habits.

One of them pulled a gun, but before police got to the Citizens Bank, those two were out the door and took off without getting any cash. 

Here's what the FBI said happened there just after noon.

One of the women with the full nun habit, veil and wimple covering her hair, pulled the gun and demanded money.

The other with the similar get-up stood near the door in sunglasses.

Police believed a teller pulled an alarm that spooked these sinning sisters, who most likely aren't nuns.

The robbers were described as two Hispanic women, around five-foot-tall with medium build.
