FBI offers a reward to catch a Brooklyn Center bank robber


The Federal Bureau of Investigation is offering a reward to anyone who can help them catch the woman who robbed a Brooklyn Center bank last week.

Brooklyn Center police say the Wells Fargo Bank was robbed April 19, and they believe she was involved.

A woman had entered and demanded money. Officers say a weapon was implied.

Then the suspect fled on foot.

Initially, officials described the suspect as a white female in her 30s, standing 5-foot 8-inches tall and weighing about 140 pounds.

Police are hoping someone will be able to identify the woman in the photographs, as well as identify a vehicle. Officials describe the car as a 1990's Toyota Camry.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Brooklyn Center Police Department at 763-569-3333. Or the Hennepin County Sheriff's dispatch at 952-258-5321.

Similar incidents

There have been some similar incidents in the Twin Cities area, but police tell the Star Tribune that this suspect is not the woman (or one of the women) involved in other recent robberies.

Maplewood police say a woman robbed a TCF Bank earlier this month.

The woman – described as being in her 20s – handed the teller a note demanding money and implying she had a gun, then fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Another incident happened in March when a female suspect robbed a credit union in Minneapolis.

Similarly, that suspect implied she had a gun and fled with cash. She is also said to have been in her 20s.

However, the suspect in the Minneapolis robbery was described as having blonde hair – while the Maplewood suspect was said to have had dark hair, possibly with highlights.
