Brownsville police are searching for a bank robber, but this case is very different from other Valley robberies, authorities are searching for a woman.
The woman made off with $7,000 to $8,000 dollars in the heist using a cardboard box. Authorities say that someone made a bomb threat and police are not sure if the package she was carrying had anything to do with the robbery. Bank employees had to evacuate the building as police investigated the crime scene. Officers did close some streets to traffic around the bank, but within a few hours the streets were reopened.
The woman is described as 5' tall, about 105 to 115 pounds, light complexion, short brown shoulder length hair, freckles on her face and a tattoo of a rose on her right side of her chest.
If you have any information on her please contact the FBI in Brownsville at 956.546.6922 or Brownsville CrimeStoppers at 956.546.TIPS.
