Officials are asking for the public's help in finding a woman believed to be responsible for at least three area bank robberies in the past month.

The most recent robbery happened Friday at Capital One Bank, 3037 F.M. 1960 East in Houston.

The woman was walked into the bank around 2:40pm and slid a threatening note to the teller, demanded money.

The teller gave the woman some cash, but it apparently was not enough. The robber asked for more money, officials said. The teller told her she gave her all the money, so the woman fled.

No one was physically injured during the robbery.

The suspect was captured in several photos taken by the bank's security cameras. She is described as a black female in her mid-30s. She is about 5 feet 7 inches and weighs about 215-220 pounds with a heavy build, dark complexion and a black curly weave in her hair. She wore a tan wool hat, tan turtleneck sweater, black windbreaker and blue jeans.

The woman is believed to be responsible for at least two other Houston bank robberies -- the robbery of Compass Bank at 10635 Louetta on November 22 and the robbery of Capital One Bank at 10951 Jones Road on November 19.
