FBI Charlotte announced that it is searching for an unknown woman who had struck a fourth bank in Hamlet on Saturday, offering a reward of up to $10,000. FBI Baltimore and FBI Philadelphia were also tagged in the post.
The woman was nicknamed “the Pink Lady Bandit” because of the signature pink handbag she carried during two of the robberies committed over the past eight days, according to the FBI. She is described as a white or Hispanic woman approximately 1m 57cm – 1m 62cm tall. In two of the robberies she was spotted wearing yoga pants, tank tops, a navy baseball hat, and her distinctive pink handbag.
