The FBI says two women suspected of robbing four banks in the Galleria area today are in custody.

One robbery happened around 1:45pm in the 11300 block of Chimney Rock and another just 35 minutes later in the 4900 block of San Felipe. The locations of the other two banks weren't immediately available.

Officials say in each robbery, two women handed tellers threatening notes demanding cash. In at least two of them, the suspects flashed a weapon.

The suspects got away with cash in at least three of the heists.

Both women now face robbery charges. Their identities have not yet been released.
