RACINE – The Racine Police Department has released images along with a description of the woman who reportedly robbed a local TCF Bank last weekend.

Police have been looking for the female suspect since she allegedly robbed the TCF Bank, 3935 Douglas Ave., at around 12:30 p.m. on Saturday before fleeing with an undisclosed amount of money.

On Thursday, police released images from the bank in order to help identify the woman.

The suspect is described as a black woman approximately 5 foot 7 inches and between 150 and 170 pounds, according to a Racine Police Department press release. And during the robbery, she was wearing a reddish-brown, medium-length wig, sunglasses, a dark colored blouse, red lipstick and red fingernail polish.

The woman also reportedly had an ace bandage on her right wrist and was carrying a reddish brown shoulder bag, according to the release.

At no point during the robbery did the woman display a weapon but she did imply that she had a weapon, according to the release.

Racine Police investigators urge those with information about the crime to contact the investigations unit at (262) 635-7756.

People may also contact Crimestoppers at (262) 636-9330.

    The bandage could be a way to cover a wrist tattoo. Anyone knowing this woman will recognize the purse and those "I haven't worked a real job in my lifetime" fingernails.

    Are those tiny footballs under the counter? Ooh, I want one.

    Can't we just arm the tellers and, upon a weapon being mentioned, give them the power to shoot? This cr@p would end very quickly.

    Why are the blacks always suspected? Look at this story and most others. Another story this week was a drive by shooting that involved a black killing 1 and injuring 2. Why do they wonder? They should open their eyes.

    "Implying" having a weapon is the same as..."having" a weapon. Can only hope camera footage is clearer(not dark) as the pic is here. No mask.. Should be an easy bust and just because she's female and possibly first time caught... Lock her up for at least five.
