FBI: Woman behind six bank robberies or attempts

- The FBI is on the hunt for a woman who investigators said has targeted six banks in the past several weeks, spanning from metro Atlanta to Tennessee.

The locations confirmed by the FBI include the Navy Federal Credit Union in Kennesaw, a Wells Fargo in Marietta, PNC Bank in Sandy Springs, and two Chase banks in Atlanta, at which one robbery attempt was unsuccessful.

Federal agents said they now believe the woman is also connected to the robbery of a bank in Tennessee.

FBI agents warn metro banks to be on the lookout for the suspect. Investigators said the woman dresses normally, pretending to be a regular customer to avoid alerting anyone of the robbery attempt.

"We're going to see her again until she's apprehended. She has no concerns about anyone interfering or stopping her," said Special Agent Stephen Emmett.

The woman, agents said, consistently produces a note threatening employees with a possible weapon.

Authorities describe the woman as in her 20s or 30s, 5'5" tall, and believe she is in the metro Atlanta area.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers. Tips leading to an arrest can provide a reward up to $2,000.
