The two nitwits who tried to escape from a bank robbery in Royersford via the 99 bus two months ago pled not guilty to charges earlier this week at Norristown Courthouse, according to the Pottstown Mercury.

James Thomas Roberts, 38, of Philadelphia, will be charged with robbery, receiving stolen property, theft, simple assault and criminal use of a communication facility (whatver the hell that means). Allison L. Stephens, 44, of Royersford and/or Lansdale, is charged with aiding a crime, hindering apprehension or prosecution, and receiving stolen property.

Roberts and Stephens allegedly robbed the National Penn Bank in Royersford on February 6. The two genius thiefs attempted to escape on a Norristown-bound 99 bus. One of the tellers at the bank managed to slip in a GPS device that tracked where they were. Police later caught up with the bus at Egypt and Trooper Rds in Lower Providence.

Moral of this story: Crime doesn't pay, especially if you take SEPTA...
