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.
