Atlanta's 'Barbie Bandit' back in jail

MARIETTA, Ga. - One of two women who was dubbed the "Barbie Bandits" after a Cobb County bank heist is behind bars again.

Ashley Nicole Miller, 22, was sentenced to 90 days in jail for violating her probation in a recent arrest on a battery charge in Gwinnett County. Jail records show she was booked into the Cobb County jail Jan. 14.

Miller and Heather Lyn Johnston gained national attention in 2007 when authorities say they staged a bank robbery. Surveillance video showed the two laughing as they stole nearly $11,000 from a bank teller who was later determined to be part of the scheme.

The two women then went on a shopping spree before being caught and convicted.

Johnston only got probation, but Miller was sentenced to two years in prison and eight years probation.
