FBI seeks suspect in Pojoaque bank heist

-A A +A

 

The FBI, Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office, and Pojoaque Tribal Police Department are looking for a woman who robbed a Wells Fargo bank branch in the Pueblo of Pojoaque Tuesday afternoon.

The suspect is described as a Native American or Hispanic female, approximately 5’3” tall, with a medium to heavy build.

She wore sunglasses, a black and white bandana around her head, a white surgical mask over her face, blue gloves, a dark hooded sweatshirt, light colored pants, and dark shoes.

The suspect may have acne scars on her face.

Witnesses say the suspect entered the bank on 3 W. Gutierrez St. at approximately 2:13 p.m.

She showed a handgun and demanded a teller put money in a white bag the suspect was holding.

The suspect left the bank with an undisclosed amount of money.

She may have fled in a white, crew-cab GM or Chevrolet pickup truck last seen heading eastbound into a residential area.

Bank robbery is punishable by a 20-year prison sentence for each offense, and the penalty increases if a dangerous weapon is used in the commission of the crime.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Albuquerque FBI Office at 505-889-1300 (24 hours) or Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office at 505-428-3720.
