Glen Carbon police responded to a bank robbery at a U.S. Bank branch in Glen Carbon at 2:15 p.m. Thursday.
Lt. Wayne White of the Glen Carbon Police Department said a white woman handed a handwritten note to a teller that stated she was committing a robbery and implied she had a gun in the bag that she was carrying. Police said the woman left the branch, located at 3601 Illinois 159, on a bicycle. Police did not say how much money the woman stole. No one was injured.
Police said the suspect is between 5-foot-2 and 5-4 with a thin build, long brown hair and a pointy nose. Police said the woman was wearing a multicolored hemp-style hooded jacket, a light-colored hat with a bill, long black boots and black stockings.
The heist was the second reported robbery of a U.S. Bank branch in the metro-east Thursday. Just after 1 p.m., a U.S. Bank branch was the site of an armed robbery in O’Fallon.
