Police: Woman Threatening AIDS Robs Bank

Surveillance Photos Of Longmont Robbery Released

Police on Friday released surveillance photos of a woman who robbed a Wells Fargo bank Thursday night by threatening the teller with AIDS.

The woman was said to be "pale," white, and between 55 and 75 years old. She was described as having a bony build and a thin face, which she covered with a blue bandana during the heist.

The robbery occurred at the bank branch inside the Safeway at Ken Pratt Boulevard and South Pratt Parkway at 6:49 p.m., said Longmont police spokesman Jeff Satur.

Police said the woman approached the counter and gave the teller a note explaining that she was robbing the bank.

"She indicated she had AIDS and would give it to the teller if she didn't cooperate," Satur said.

The teller gave her an undisclosed amount of cash and the woman walked off.

She did not show a weapon and no one was hurt, Satur said.

The woman is about 5 feet 6 inches tall and between 130 to 150 pounds. She was wearing a white "train conductor's hat" with blue or black stripes and a gray sweatshirt with a Bass Pro Shops logo.

She coughed frequently during the robbery, police said.

Anyone with information about the robbery or the woman is asked to call Longmont police Detective Stephen Desmond at 303-774-4590 or may leave anonymous tips with Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or online at crimeshurt.com.
