Authorities say Edwards and a male accomplice, who remains at large, wore the nun outfits and displayed weapons during the robbery of the bank.

The FBI says a costume shop's records show Edwards purchased two masks 10 days before the robbery, adding the same credit card was used to purchase the nun costumes.

The bank robbery charge filed Thursday against Edwards is the second she faces. Earlier in June, Edwards was charged in connection with the robbery of a Chase Bank branch in Country Club Hills.
