Navahcia Edwards: Model 'robbed bank at gunpoint with her ex-boyfriend wearing NUN costumes inspired by the movie The Town'
A former Chicago bank employee who moonlighted as an X-rated model is now on trial for allegedly robbing another bank with her former boyfriend while being disguised as old nuns.
Navahcia Edwards' former paramour and alleged partner in crime, Lyndon Germel Wesley, testified in court Monday that the two held up a bank in May 2011 wearing masks and Halloween costumes.
According to Wesley, who got a plea deal after agreeing to cooperate against Edwards, she came up with the idea for the robbery after being inspired by the 2010 heist movie The Town, which the two had watched just weeks earlier.

According to the prosecution, Edwards embezzled more than $22,000 from a Chase Bank in Country Club Hills while working there in early 2011, Chicago Tribune reported.
After being caught stealing, Edwards promised to compensate the bank, but was struggling to come up with the money by May.
In an effort to get out of her bind, Edwards, an X-rated model, and her boyfriend allegedly came up with the plot to rob a TCF Bank in Palos Heights, where she had previously worked.
According to court testimony, Edwards chose to stage the heist on Sunday when only two workers were present in the bank.
Wesley said he entered the bank armed with a BB gun and wearing a mask and a nun’s robe, which the couple bought online. He jumped over the counter and ordered the tellers to approach the vault.
Meanwhile, Edwards, who Wesley said was carrying a real gun, told the bank staff in a deep voice to open the vault. According to the testimony of a teller, the female suspect put a gun to her head and threatened her supervisor;
Edwards then took $120,000 in cash, stuffed the bills into a duffel bag and took off with Wesley, but not before restraining the tellers' hands with zip-ties, according to court testimony.

Wesley said he cut up the wrinkled masks and burned the black-and-white outfits in a grill.
The lovers then split up the loot and spent it away. Edwards allegedly bought a laptop computer, new clothes and paid $500 for a photo shoot.
Prosecutors said the woman also put down a $250 deposit on an engagement ring for her fiance.
But the pairs' plan for a rosy future together as husband and wife were dashed when Edwards was arrested in September 2012, followed by Wesley a month later, according to CBS Chicago.
Authorities said Edwards' decision to empty three vaults but leave a fourth containing only coins closed tipped off police that it was an inside job.
Reporting by MailOnline has reveled that besides a fledgling career in mainstream modeling, Edwards had starred in pornographic and striptease videos using several different aliases, among them Nicci Nikole and Yasmine Waters.

Posters showing the half-naked Edwards under the pseudonym Nicci Nikole are still available online for $10. She also posed for scores of pictures depicting her in different states of undress.
Prior to her arrest, Edwards was employed by an X-rated site called Miyami Blue featuring lewd photos and videos under the name Marc.
Edwards had drawn a following on the internet thanks to a homemade video showing the young woman dancing on a balcony in a grey track suit, which concludes with her flashing her breasts to the camera.
But besides her impressive physiqe, Edwards also apparently has a keen mind. The woman attended Moraine Valley Community College in Palos Heights, where she made it onto the Presdent's List in 2010 for earning a grade point average approaching a perfect 4.0.
