The Wells Fargo Bank branch on Bullsboro Drive at Amlajack Boulevard was robbed around 1 p.m. Tuesday, and authorities are now on the lookout for a female suspect.

Around 12:59 p.m., the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office received a call from the bank that it had been robbed, said Lt. Col. Jimmy Yarbrough with the sheriff’s office. According to Yarbrough, the suspect was described as a black female about 5 feet, 5 inches tall, with long black hair, and she was wearing all black clothing and a large black baseball cap.

The woman presented the clerk a note that said she had a gun, and the clerk gave her an undisclosed amount of money, Yarbrough said.

The woman then fled the bank with the note.

The woman has not been identified by authorities, but she is now a suspect in previous armed robberies around the area, Yarbrough said.
