Authorities say the suspect in Friday's robbery of the Cottondale branch of the Bank of Tuscaloosa may be linked to another bank robbery earlier this month.
Witnesses told officers the suspect had a "drawn on" beard when she entered the bank Friday.
Police say she told tellers she had a bomb and demanded money after placing a device on a counter.
She took an undisclosed amount of money and then fled the scene in a maroon vehicle.
The FBI and local police are investigating.
