SANTA ANA, Calif.  — Authorities released surveillance photos Monday of a bank robbery suspect, dubbed the Chubby Cheeks Bandit.

The unidentified woman was wanted in connection with a holdup at a Chase branch in Santa Ana on June 17.

During the robbery the woman demanded cash from the teller, shouting, “Give me your money! I need money,” FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said.

The photos showed the woman wearing a checkered shirt, jeans, hat and sunglasses.

She was described as a white woman in her late 20s, 5 foot 3 inches tall, weighing 170 pounds and what witnesses described as chubby cheeks.
