The unknown woman walked into the bank and handed the teller a note indicating it was a robbery and demanded money, according to a news release from the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department.

The teller handed over an undisclosed amount of cash after which the woman left the bank, the release stated.

Investigators said it was unclear which direction the woman went or if she left on foot or had a vehicle.

In the surveillance photo the woman can be seen wearing what appeared to be a bandage of some sort over her nose. The sheriff’s department did not provide information on whether that might be the result of an injury or just part of an attempt to disguise her identity.

U.S. Bank was offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the woman, the release stated.

Anyone with information was urged to call 760-366-4175
