Show me the money

What is going on here?

Are we having a plague of female bank robbers? Is the economy so bad that folks are getting desperate?

They'll go to jail, eventually.
Police again searching for female bank robber

Police still are searching for a female bank robber after an unarmed Tuesday afternoon heist at Wells Fargo on North Walnut Avenue.

The suspect was described to the New Braunfels Police Department as a 5-foot, 5-inch, 200-pound Hispanic woman in her late 20s, police spokesman Lt. Michael Penshorn said.

She had dark hair in a ponytail and was wearing sunglasses, Penshorn said. She wore a blue and green plaid jacket and carried a black purse.

She displayed no weapon and left around 1:30 p.m. with an undisclosed amount of cash, Penshorn said. No vehicle description was given to police.

This robbery comes just weeks after New Braunfels Police charged another female — Laurie Lynette Wolfe — with robbery.

The 52-year-old woman was charged in connection with the Dec. 29 heist at the International Bank of Commerce inside the H-E-B on South Walnut Avenue.

According to officials, Wolfe also allegedly was involved in at least four robberies around Texas. She is currently in Bexar County Jail in lieu of a $75,000 bond.
