BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - The Bakersfield Police Department is asking the community for help in identifying and locating a woman wanted for attempted bank robbery.
On Saturday, July 19 at 10:20 a.m. police said she entered the Wells Fargo Bank located at 8000 White Lane, approached an employee and displayed a note advising she was robbing the bank.
Because of the suspect's suspicious behavior when she entered the bank, two other employees approached her at the same time she was displaying the robbery note to the other employee.
Police say it appeared she became nervous and fled the business without any money.
Police described the suspect as a black female between 25 and 35 years old, 180 to 200 pounds with a light complexion, black pony tail. Police said she was wearing a white and black baseball hat, dark colored large framed sunglasses, a turquoise long-sleeved pullover, black pants and white athletic shoes.
Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to call Detective Dennis Park at (661) 326-3552 or the Bakersfield Police Department at (661) 327-7111.
