A serial female bank robber has struck again in the Houston area.

The FBI says the suspect is now believed responsible for at least four recent area bank robberies. The latest crime happened at around 4pm Wednesday when the FBI says the woman entered the Capital One bank at 19619 Tomball Parkway and handed the teller a threatening note demanding money. When the teller handed over the money, the robber said "Thank you" and exited the bank.

In a robbery committed on December 16 at the Capital One bank at 3037 FM 1960 East, the woman walked into the bank around 2:40pm and slid a threatening note to the teller, demanding money. The teller gave the woman some cash, then the teller explained that there was no more money, and the robber left the bank.

In both December robberies, the woman wore a black windbreaker and a tan knit cap. She is described by witnesses as a black female in her mid 30s, standing 5-foot-5 to 5-foot-7 and weighing between 190 and 200 pounds. She has a heavy build and medium complexion. She has long weave braids or wears a wig.

The woman is also suspected in the robbery of the Capital One bank at 10951 Jones Road on November 19 and the robbery of the Compass bank at 10635 Louetta on November 22.
