Los Alamos Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation swarmed White Rock Tuesday as they looked for a woman suspected of robbing Los Alamos National Bank at 77 Rover Blvd.
As of press time Wednesday, the suspect in Tuesday’s heist remains at large.
With police activity in the area, nearby Piñon and Chamisa Elementary Schools were in lockdown mode, as well.
Wednesday morning, the schools were back to a normal schedule.
But it was anything but normal Tuesday.
Witnesses say the suspect entered the LANB branch just before 1:30 p.m. and demanded money from a teller.
The teller gave an undisclosed amount of cash to the suspect, who put the money in a plastic grocery bag and left the bank.
The suspect was described as a Hispanic or Native American female in her late 20s or early 30s, approximately 5-feet-4 and weighing about 150 pounds. She may have a scar or tattoo below her left eye.
The suspect wore a black jacket over a black or gray hoodie. She also had on winter gloves.
Anyone with information about the bank robbery is asked to call the Albuquerque FBI Office at 505-889-1300 (24 hours) or LAPD, 662-8222.
