FBI had put out an all points bulletin for An
The unknown female wears a baseball cap and has shoulder-length blond hair pulled back in a ponytail according to an FBI press release. The female suspect typically slouches with her arms folded. (She could use Pilotes or Alexander Technique to improve her posture.) "In each of the robberies, a woman entered the bank, verbally demanded money, and then left the bank on foot," according to the FBI release.
"In Austin, we're fortunate we don't see a whole lot of bank robberies," said Austin police spokesman Kevin Buchman. The FBI believes the same woman is now responsible for the robberies in the Pacific Northwest.
She is considered armed, dangerous and of course "blond" so do not try to date her without first reading the safe way to approach in God is a Woman, Dating Disasters.. Otherwise, if you do hook up, you will need to read Sex Starved Marriage by Michelle Wiener Davis because she is likely to do major time in jail once she is caught.
Update: The FBI has posted more pictures of the PonyTail Bandit http://www.amw.com/fugitives/video_photos.cfm?id=45550
Update 10-6-07: From Federal Bureau of Investigation www.fbi.gov comes the latest word. While Legal Pub named her the "Ponytail Bandit" and yes, we do want the movie rights, the FBI describes her as " a pretty young woman whose shoulder-length blond ponytail sprouts from the back of her baseball cap in images captured by banks she allegedly robbed in three states in May." We think the description does not do her justice. In each performance, she approaches bank tellers, nicely asks for money, and then waits, arms crossed, slouching slightly, until tellers give her the money. (Then she smiles and says thank you!) The Ponytail bandit does not fit the stereotype of a bank robber because she is pretty and polite.While a famous celebrate, who has captured the imagination of many men, she remains a fugitive wanted for robberies in Washington, California and Texas.
Last year more than $72 million was stolen across the country in robberies.
Other FBI interesting information:
In Baltimore, Jeff Cisar created a website(bankbandits.org) designed to spotlight suspected bank robbers in the Baltimore, Washington, D.C., and Northern Virginia regions. The site includes surveillance images from band robberies. He has surveillance images and names of suspects such as "Bad Rug Bandit," "Banana Bandit," "Paparazzi Bandit." Similarly, in Seattle, Larry Carr creates unique names assigned to bank robbers -- "Attila the Bun," "Groundhog Day Bandit," Hollywood Bandit."
At one time it appeared that the Ponytail bandit was about to be caught, she eluded capture. If she is smart enough to never rob again, she may just reform long enough to play herself when the T.V. movie comes out in the future. She has the looks and demeanor to play herself and make an honest living.
