Lady Bank Robber Sought
A black woman "with a slim build and brown eyes," police say, is sought for bank robbery. And she's no joke: The perp -- between 23-28 years old, 5'1"-5'5" -- hit the Sovereign Bank at Broadway and 82nd Street twice, once on February 1, and again on February 12. She got paid both times; maybe they were still stunned from the first time. (Female bank robbers are rare in these parts, though not unprecedented.) Here's the witness sketch. If you see her, NYPD asks that you call 1-800-577-TIPS (8477), or visit nypdcrimestoppers.com, or text 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577.
