“Pregnant Woman” Robs Bank of America

"Coeur d’Alene police officers and local FBI responded to the Bank of America for the report of a robbery. Tellers inside of the bank related that the female suspect came into the bank and stayed for a while talking to one of the tellers. The female was nervous and had a list of bills she needed to pay on a post it note. The teller said the suspect appeared stressed as she told her that she has four kids to take care of with a fifth one on the way. The female was wearing a maternity top and appeared pregnant.

"That teller went to a different window and the suspect approached a different teller. She immediately demanded cash from the teller. She told her she had a gun but she did not display it. The suspect then left the bank on foot with an undisclosed amount of money. She was last seen in the 100 block of North 4th St.

"The suspect is described as in her mid 30’s, 5’9, heavy set from pregnancy, dark hair in a bun, very blue eyes, and a fair complexion. She was wearing a teal colored maternity top with ¾ length sleeves and white pants. See the attached bank photo of the suspect. Anyone with any information on this crime is asked to contact the Coeur d’Alene Police Department at 769-2320 or the Tip Line at 769-2296."

CDADave (2:13 p.m. today): I don't know how accurate this is, but there may have been a bank robbery at the Bank of America on south 4th Street. Police cars were parked in the middle of the street at 2nd and Front, and 5th and Front; an unmarked car with lights flashing was parked at 5th and Sherman. A couple passers-by told me there was a bank robbery there. (I found out while at Java on Sherman). Again, this is an uncomfirmed report, but YOU HEARD IT HERE!
