FBI searches for female bank robber in San Diego suburb

October 13, 2009 |  9:03 pm


A woman apparently in her mid-30s, with a cellphone to her ear and wearing oversized sunglasses, walked into a bank in a San Diego suburb Tuesday and robbed it of an undisclosed amount of money, the FBI said.

The woman presented a demand note to a teller at the U.S. Bank branch in Poway. A weapon was alluded to but not seen.

Only 6% of bank robbers are women, the FBI says.
