A woman robbed a bank inside a Spokane grocery store today.

The woman left with an undisclosed amount of cash after threatening a teller at Banner Bank in Safeway, 933 E. Mission Ave., about 1:25 p.m., police said.

She’s described as a white, 45 to 50, 5-foot-5 and heavy set with red hair and dark sunglasses. She fled out the north door of the store. Police converged on the area but haven’t located a suspect.

The same branch was robbed in February. Douglas E. Labish, already convicted of three bank robberies in 2002, is set to enter a plea for that robbery on July 8.

Anyone with information on today’s robbery is asked to call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233.
