DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Authorities are asking for assistance identifying the woman they believe is responsible for robbing nine different banks across North Texas.

All of the crimes happened since November 2014. The robberies, in Arlington, Grand Prairie, Irving, Mansfield, McKinney, and Mesquite, all occurred at a bank branch located inside large retail stores.

During most of the robberies, the suspect entered the bank and handed a teller a note demanding money. Witnesses have told police the suspect left the scene in a silver car or PT Cruiser.

The suspect is described as a black female with a mole or piercing above the right side of her lip. She is in her 30s or 40s, stands about 5’2”, and weighs approximately 160 pounds.

During the time of the robberies the woman has typically worn a black hoodie, black pants, black shoes and oversized black-framed sunglasses.

Officials are asking that anyone who has information about the suspect or the robberies contact their local police department or the Dallas office of the FBI at 972-559-5000. A reward of up to $10,000 is being offered for information leading to an ID, arrest and indictment of the suspect.
