St. Pete police looking for female bank robber

ST. PETERSBURG — Police are looking for a woman they said robbed a GROW Financial Bank on Wednesday, then drove away in a Honda sedan.

Officers were called to the bank at 2600 Dr. Martin Luther King St. N at about 11 a.m. Bank employees said the woman, who was armed with a handgun, gave a note to the teller demanding cash.

No one was injured, and witnesses said the woman left in a late 1990s' maroon-colored Honda Accord. The vehicle has a moon roof and what appears to be a red, white and blue sticker on the left rear bumper, police said.

The woman is described as a black female, who was 30 to 40 years old with a medium to heavy build. She stands about 5 foot 4 inches tall, police said, and was wearing a dark velour jumpsuit, navy baseball cap, a white shirt and sunglasses. She also carried a black fabric messenger bag and was possibly wearing a dark wig, officials said.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at (727) 893-7780.
