CHICAGO (CBS) — It’s an everyday crime with an unusual suspect: a female bank robber who’s hit the same Chase Bank branch twice.

The robber, who hit the bank at 600 N. Dearborn St., wore all black with a black cap and looks like she might be running errands.

LISTEN: WBBM Newsradio’s Mike Krauser reports

The Bonnie without a Clyde hit the bank at 9:30 a.m. Saturday and also robbed the place back in September.

Former Chicago Police Superintendent Jody Weis says the suspect “does not look like your typical heroin junkie trying to get money for a fix.”

The thief is female, blond, maybe in her early 30s. She’s Caucasian, about 5 foot 7 inches and about 130 pounds. She wears workout pants, a black cap and sunglasses.

Her MO: She goes into the bank and hands the teller a note demanding money and implies that she has a gun. She takes the money and escapes.

Weis, now the head of the Chicago Crime Commission, says she may need drug money or perhaps she has hit hard times financially.

He believes it’s possible that she lives near the bank. Weis calls the surveillance photos “really good,” and believes someone will recognize her.
