CANTON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Two women have been arrested in last Friday's bizarre bank robbery attempt in Canton. Police confirm Olivia Abron and Heather Grinston have been charged in the crime.

Police say Abron entered the bank demanding money, then told responding officers she was carrying a bomb. Grinston is being charged with conspiracy to commit bank robbery.

After a standoff that lasted more than an hour, Grinston was finally allowed to leave the bank, after officers removed a backpack she was carrying.   

The bag was destroyed.  The FBI is studying it to determine if it was an explosive.

Canton police say their investigation is ongoing.
