Police: Woman makes bomb threat, robs bank
Taylor police are asking for the public’s help identifying and locating a woman who allegedly made a bomb threat during the course of a bank robbery Thursday morning.
The alleged robbery took place about 9:45 a.m. at Monroe Bank & Trust, on the 7100 block of Pelham.
The suspect, after waiting for the lobby area to clear of other customers, gave the teller two notes she wrote on bank forms, according to a statement from Taylor Police Chief Mary Sclabassi.
One note read: “Give me all your $100s and $50s. I have a bomb and will blow up all U.S. citizens,” according to police.
The robbery was successful, and the woman allegedly left with what police call an “undisclosed” amount of money.
The suspect is described as a female, possibly Arabic, about 5 feet 4 or 5 inches tall, and of medium build. She work dark pants, a short-sleeve shirt — which police say may be medical scrubs — black headwear and a large patterned scarf.
Police believe she escaped in a light-colored vehicle, possibly silver or gray.
Taylor police request that anyone with information call (734) 287-6611.
