UPDATE: Reward Offered For 'Bad Hair Bandit'
SPOKANE, Wash. - Crime Stoppers is offering a special reward for information that leads to the capture of a woman dubbed the "Bad Hair Bandit."
The suspect has robbed fourteen financial institutions in Washington, according to the FBI, and hit the Chase Bank at 822 W. Francis on Monday. She has hit banks in the Puget Sound area, as well as in Moses Lake and Ellensburg.
It appears she may be working her way eastbound, and Crime Stoppers wants to end her serial robbery ways before she leave the Spokane area.
Dubbed the Bad Hair Bandit because of the hyper-ugly wigs she wears, the suspect is a white female in her 30's who is about 5'06" tall and has a heavy build. She has told victim tellers she is armed, but displayed no weapon in Monday's heist.
The Bad Hair Bandit may be staying in lower-cost motels. No vehicle was seen in Monday's robbery.
Anyone with information about Bad Hair Bandit should call 911 immediately or the Crime Stoppers Tip Line at 1-800-222-TIPS.
