Casual Bank Robbery For Cell Phone Chatter
A South Florida bank was hit by a very unusual robber. Security footage shows a woman casually chatting away on a cell phone when in reality she was plotting a bank robbery. The incident occurred on Wednesday. The bank in question was TD bank at Okeechobee Boulevard. This West Palm Beach location hasn’t ever seen anything of this nature.
Descriptions of the woman had her sporting a hat and brown wig. Security footage shows her nonchalantly chatting away on a cell phone. Authorities don’t believe the woman was actually talking on the phone, though. She then handed the bank teller a note that demanded money.
The woman’s getaway was simple. She left the scene on foot. Descriptions aren’t very in-depth. Palm Beach County Crime Stoppers have put out a notice for concerned citizens to look for a woman who is 5-foot-4, skinny, and in her early 20’s. The young cell phone fan was captured in clear detail on bank security cameras and authorities believe it will be only a matter of time before she is brought to justice.
Bank robberies in this area of Florida aren’t all that common, and the unusual tactic of the woman made the story newsworthy. Authorities continue their search for the woman that was involved in this very unique June 4th bank robbery in Florida. People are encouraged to browse over the images captured by security cameras and report the name of the woman to the Crime Stoppers Hotline if they recognize her. In the meantime, there have been no more robberies by the woman since that time. This doesn’t mean that she doesn’t plan to strike again, so banks everywhere in the area are on alert to look for a woman who very casually steps into the bank talking on a cell phone. Her unique attire, a hat and sweatpants, also set her apart.
